About

94

Complex and dry, with a shifting array of aromas and flavors. At first, this rye smelled spicy and orange-y, but later opened up to a strong caramel fragrance. In addition to heavy wood in the flavor, caramel, dark tea, and tobacco also can be detected. Light, smooth finish is velvety on the tongue. Light to medium body, with the right amount of bite. With some dilution from ice, it opens up, and becomes even more light and crisp. Seems like a good rye for Sazeracs and other cocktails.

MALT ADVOCATE - Best Buy of the Year: Rittenhouse Rye 100 Proof One of the best kept secrets in rye whiskey. Not quite as refined as the Sazerac Rye 6 year old, but it makes up for it in its sheer brute force. It is darker, deeper, and more rustic (but in a good way). Chewy toffee and dark molasses balance the spicy rye notes and soothe the alcohol heat.
