Rittenhouse 100% Rye
Rittenhouse Rye is produced in the tradition of the classic Pennsylvania or "Monongahela" rye whiskeys, which are believed to have had a spicier and fruitier flavor profile. This style is said to be a high rye mashbill consisting of 80-100% rye grain. Ironically Rittenhouse is a low rye (51%) which is typical of the modern Kentucky rye mashbill.
Leather, lightly charred oak, and light peach along with pepper and a dash of classic rye spice are all noticeable. While there’s a pleasant dash of heat up front, it’s not overly hot, and not overly spicy.
