Tasting Notes

If I blind tasted Rittenhouse, I would think it's a high-end rye with an old age statement. Heaven Hill is absolutely exceptional in producing inexpensive yet amazing whiskey. I don’t know how, but they keep doing it. Well done!

Staff Pick Notes

This is my “stranded on a desert island” bottle, and in my opinion, the best value whiskey on the market. Bottled in bond (i.e., aged at least four years in a government warehouse and bottled at 100 proof), Rittenhouse is spicy, lightly wooded, and robust, with notes of caramel and cocoa. Despite its price point, this rye tastes expensive: Heaven Hill Distillery uses the same juice to make their 23-year-old Rittenhouse, which retails at around eight times the price. This whiskey is my “go-to” for Manhattans (a flavor-rich sweet vermouth like Carpano or Vya would stand up well), but it is also delicious neat or with a cube of ice.
