2019 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Rittenhouse Bottled-In-Bond 4 Years Old Straight Rye Whiskey (United States), 50% abv, $27.99

95
Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

This straight rye opens with a formidable nose of dark fruit leather and baking spice, but sidles nicely onto the palate with chocolate covered cherries, red licorice, and nutmeg. It is warm in the mouth, amplifying spicy characteristics through the finish. Brassy and beguiling.
