This straight rye whisky(without the 'e') uses a mash-bill of 65% rye, 23% corn and 12% malted barley. It is made to the style originally common in Pennsylvanian rye whiskies.
Rittenhouse Bottled-In-Bond's label features graphic elements from its original post-Prohibition packaging, evoking the Art Deco style of the 1930's, when the brand was first introduced as 'Rittenhouse Square Rye'.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 04/03/2016
Clear, coppery amber with polished gold highlights.
Nutty, old wardrobe oak with varnish, turpentine, banana, faint cherry, vanilla and lanolin.
Distinct spicy woody rye with creamy vanilla, ginger spice, cherry and faint dark chocolate. Light rounding oiliness and a floral touch of parma violet.
Dry, vanished oak with faint overripe banana and lingering spice.
Something of a reference for how rye whiskey should be. Full-bodied and spicy with ginger, cherry, faint dark chocolate a floral touch of parma violet.
