Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Anders,
Well balanced – I didn’t find it quite as spicy as some other reviews would have you think, but a nice peppery nose and some cinnamon and caramel in the palate. It’s good neat and works tremendously well in a Boulevardier. Overall, great value.

A straight up rye whiskey that is great for cocktails.

Mike,
The spice kicks you in the teeth right away, but then you get some sweet vanilla to smooth it all out.

Fantastic value rye. Spice and caramel followed by vanilla and sweetness on the back end. Definitely buying a bottle next time I shop.

This is the spiciest rye I’ve had with a subtle sweetness on the end. Can’t wait to try it in a Manhattan.

A cinnamon parade in my mouth. Spicy rye-bomb. I can’t understand how the price is so low.

Bryce,
I think Rittenhouse rye is underrated. For around $25 this rye is great for sipping neat, on the rocks, and in Manhattans. If you don't prefer a big rye spice, you won't like this. It has a big bold rye-spiciness flavor profile with a touch of sweetness. I love it.

Clark,
we bought this as part of the Ryevolution tasting box, and was the second we tried. definite vanilla on the nose. a lot of burn in the taste and follows in the finish. caramel comes though in the finish as well. For me, maybe better mixed in drinks.

Thomas,
Tremendous value and availability. Reminds me of a softer Pikesville Rye which is my personal favorite. Great whisky for cocktails.

Phil,
Rittenhouse smells spice and rye on the nose with a hint of maple syrup. The tastes begins hot and spicy that burns fast (like wasabi). The burn wakes you up and immediately follows with rye, brown sugar, and dryness (like a dry red wine). Finish is a slow burn follows but the honey/maple syrup lingers. Overall this is highly enjoyable.

Joe,
Spice and ethanol on the nose. Cinnamon, black pepper, dark chocolate round out the mouth. The heat is in the finish. Not amazing, but excellent value under $25.

Best home cocktail whiskey
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Antti,
It is an outstanding, balanced, bottled in bond Straight Rye Whisky that has an aromatic birth; while a bold life leads to a long & tangy death with notes of dark chocolate, marmalade, copper, rye, oak, corn & barley.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Mat,
This was pretty good, particularly for the price but felt a little bit flat. Struggled to draw out many pronounced aromas and flavours but generally had a peppery, spicy rye character. Nice enough but lacks a bit of flavour, the first reasonable whisky at this strength at this price point though.

Denison,
Very good on the rocks! Nice bite and then a smooth finish.

Laura,
I love this whiskey
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Jernique,
Liked it. Great straight or with mixer. Love the proof the kick and smoothness at the end. The caramel, vanilla and leather hit nice in the middle and mellow out all together at the end.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Bryan,
Notes of caramel, spice and vanilla. Good everyday Rye. Not a lot of flavor in my opinion. Good to use with mixers. I would spend a little more on a product with more flavor and spice. Ok for the price.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Matt,
Grain, wood, and leather on the nose. Surprisingly not overly spicy. Dry-mouth finish. Light caramel notes.

Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Alexander,
This is excellent! A staple for a home bar. This rye is a great mixer and sipper. A steal under $25.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Paul,
Nice drink,she gives you a bit of a sting, but the aftertaste is really good and lasting
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Chad,
This was the budget buy and I can't believe the value. It will beat a lot of more expensive rye. I was amazed how little burn it had at 100 proof. Great spice, oily thick mouthfeel, rich. Little bit shorter finish with some vanilla and spearmint lingering with the spice.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
David,
Fantastic for the price. Packs a bit of spice, but not overpowering. Perfect for sipping on whilst eating a pack of Skittles (don't knock it till you've tried).
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Jessica,
This is an excellent tasting whisky and I cant believe the cost as well! Been looking for a staple sipper or ginger beer mixer and this can serve both purposes to their highest extent. It has a spice and bite that is just right, not too subtle and not too big like a lot of 100 proof ryes.

Jim,
If you like bourbon and don't like Rye, this is the rye for you......

Yordan,
It worn a Superior Gold medal on the Tokyo Whisky Spirits Competition 2020. It is an amazing Rye. Add a few drops of water and it will blow your mind!

Mark,
No better rye can be bought. Everything you want in a rye; spicy, complex, without the astringency of many 100 proofs. Bonded makes it perfect for mixing.

not a favourite
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Jon,
Not very flavorful. So so.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Stefan,
The nose is very light, a rye note is present but other than that it is hard to distinguish maybe something sweet. Taste is light rye and spice, not surprising but not so clear and it fades as a more sweet caramel, cinnamon note comes. A good introduction to rye if you only what to get used to the rye and spicey taste.

Brian,
Has a tasting with 5 people and had the whole table asking for more - couldn’t believe it’s 100 proof and that smooth for a rye
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Tom,
Like it. Its a great rye at a great price.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
David,
The first bottle I had of this was really good. The second, not as much. I found that Bulleit Rye is more to my liking, as this is a little harsh when having neat, which is how I prefer to drink whiskey.

Bennett,
Best Rye on the market for making cocktails!
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Daryl,
This is one of my favorite ryes, especially for the price. Very easy to drink. I actually have a hard time finding it in stock in stores which speaks to its popularity.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Rusty,
So Far one of my favorite Ryes. High dollar flavor, not a hight dollar price
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Travis,
smooth, sweet, easy drinking rye. My everyday mixer, great price and enough proof to make a good mixed drink.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Aaron,
A classic rye, definitely nice to have as a daily drinker if you can manage to get it in decent supply. Plenty of caramel and spice, light bits of chocolate as well. Overall a very pleasant tipple and definitely doesn't taste the proof it is.
