A Bartender’s weapon of choice.
 
Rittenhouse is one of few Rye Whiskies that was available throughout the dark age of Rye, where it was nearly impossible to get a bottle of Rye. Rittenhouse was known as the weapon of choice in the arsenal of many cocktail masters who knew what Rye can deliver. Rittenhouse is a modern Rye that includes the roots of Pennsylvania (Monongahela) style Rye even though it’s being produced in Kentucky by Heaven Hill. 
 
Rittenhouse Straight Rye is bottled in bond which means that it is a product of a single distillery, made in a single season in a single year. It is aged for at least 4 years and is mostly made from Rye mash. Recently updated with a 1930’s label this Rye Whisky is a monumental creation.

Ratings & Reviews
Dean
Dean,
I am partial to Ryes, this one is great. Has a strong rye flavor and a nice warming/spiciness on the front end with a slight sweet burnt caramel on the back end with lasting spice. Doesn't need a capful of water, but it does bring out the sweet tones and caramel flavor of this whiskey.

Perfect for a great manhattan.

Brad,
100 proof burn. However, sweet nose and good flavor. Rye balanced with the caramel feel. A touch spicy.

I like this one.
Micah
Micah,
You don't get the true flavor of the grain until really late. The initial flavors are a wonderful blend of honey and some sweeter spice notes. I can see how this would stand up nicely in a manhattan.

Spicy, great value.
Jonathan
Jonathan,
The aroma signals a strong, high-octane rye with a warm vanilla note. Satisfying heat, strong rye tang on the tongue with a nice complement of sweet notes. Looking forward to buying a bottle to add this as an ingredient in my cocktails.

Wonderful, full bodied, complex rye that is perfect in Manhattans. Also a great value in what has turned into an expensive category.
