Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Eric,
Very nice rye for the price. Nice rye and pepper spice with a long finish.

Andrew,
Bought as a mixer for Manhattans and Old Fashioneds. Superb for rye whiskey cocktails. Pretty good as a neat rue as well. Plenty of rye spice and pepper flavors with an underlying sweetness. Very good for a ~$20 whiskey.

John,
Awesome for the price point! Makes a killer old-fashioned.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Matthew,
Excellent for the price point. Straight forward rye spiciness but also fairly complex. Thought this would just be a good mixer for old fashioned's and Manhattans but had a neat drink of it first and was pleasantly surprised how good of a sipper it is. A really good staple rye for anyone's bar.

Mark,
The spiciness suits my palate neat but it also might be the perfect whiskey part of a Manhattan. All manner of delicious either way.

NAOMI,
Smooth and so easy with subtle sweetness. It goes down so nicely neat.

Edoardo,
The aroma raising my nose remind me Xmas Italian pandoro with vanilla sugar on top: clear vanilla smell very distinctive . The flavor is typical for Rye whisky with spicy savory opening and sweet fruity finish. Surprise surprise

Erik,
If you want a budget rye thats on the spicier side of the flavor profile, give this a try

guest,
Definitely taste the vanilla and caramel. Less spicy than I thought. Has a medium finish with some kick in the back

I little bit of a raw taste, but i like it when sitting campfire

Noah,
Currently my favorite rye. Floral, grass, and rye spice. Really good neat, but I think better if it rests for a few minutes with just a touch of water.

Rittenhouse 100 Rye : Nez : Alcool très présent, grain, fleuri, bois et érable ? Bouche : bouquet d épices, fraîcheur, plantes, sirop (Il me fait penser plus à une liqueur de plante qu'à un whisky) Nez +5/10min aeration : arômes sublimée, bois (erable?) Épices et plantes très présentes Bouche: arômes de liqueurs aux herbes

Erik,
Best rye for Manhattans and pretty decent on the rocks
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Chris,
My favorite everyday Rye. Best bang for your buck. Spicy, good for making cocktails or on its own.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Kyle,
The Manhattan standard as far as I'm concerned. On its own it could serve in a pinch. It's not gonna blow you away but this is so good for the price. If you usually sip whisky neat but you're looking for a mixer, look no further.

Owen,
Makes a really excellent Manhattan
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Chris,
For those who like to taste the rye in their cocktail. It's strong and good and it's super inexpensive. I almost always have a bottle on my bar.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Jay,
Harsh start. Harsh finish
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Luke,
Great nose, quite spicy and a hint of orange. Front palate is good, caramel and spice. Overall a good rye and one I would buy a bottle of.

Edward,
Really great whiskey. Lovely mellow spice and incredibly smooth for 50%. Great.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Günter,
Did not appeal when served neat, but made an enjoyable Old Fashioned. Would rank it in the runner-up column for Ryes.

Patrick,
You cannot go wrong with Rittenhouse in your Old Fashioned. It's a solid, inexpensive option for any cocktail.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Aaron,
This is one of my all time favorites for mixing into a nice Old Fashioned. It has the power to shine through and remind you it's there but it's not harsh. It's even pretty good neat. The price is definitely right for what it delivers. Good buy!

Zach,
Very smooth, caramel flavor is good.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Sunil,
A lil sweet, but wouldn't kick it out of bed for eating crackers. Not a bad finish, but not a great start.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Daniel,
Aroma: hospital grade anti-septic, hints of spice. Taste: warm and short lived spice. After times of wood. On ice: spice lasts longer and warmth is subtle. Hints of sweetness pulls through. Overall I'd have it again, but maybe not a full bottle.

Sunni,
This is an amazing eye for the price. Floral, smooth, with a great nose.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky

To be honest, it is a good one, but bit too strong for my taste.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Ken,
Solid rye whiskey, nothing special but nothing wrong. Well balanced overall and a good value.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Daniel,
Pretty sweet for a rye, almost like an in-between of rye and bourbon for my taste. I really enjoy it.

Very nice. Nice bite and smoothness.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Timothy,
Stunningly good Rye that punches way above its weight class. I could go into Aromatics ams Taste but it’s late and I’m tired. So it’s like this: deceptively smooth & spicy cherry bomb. I made a great simple style old-fashioned and it was goooood. Buy a bottle, you won’t be disappointed.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof Straight Rye Whisky
Robert,
Inspection: Nice Golden Color, Semi thick on the side of the glass. Aroma: Strong smell. Lots of Caramel and Oaky scents Taste: Stong Bite, heavy caramel. Smooth, with a strong Spicy Bite at the end. Exhale: Is a bit stronger than I like. Overal: Decent, dont think Id buy a Bottle tho.

Erwin,
My favorite of the rye tasting box. I agree with the tasting notes, except I think it's a little stronger on the nose.
