What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Rittenhouse Rye
Quote 1 “Great tasting Rye excellent for manhattans it has a great smooth peach butterscotch I can taste citrus the finish is great and it isn’t annoying.”
Quote 2 “This is a fantastic rye whiskey which i have ever tried. Like the after taste, strong grass and dried fruits flavour which stayed for a while. You get the punch just with the first sip and asking for more thereafter!”
Quote 3 “Compared to a typical bourbon, this easy-drinking rye is bold and flavourful. Medium sweet, rich and full-bodied, I find this a good alternative to the rather one-dimensional syrupy or overly-smoky bourbons sold at the same price. Underrated gem, try this now!”
