RITTENHOUSE 100 Proof Edition 2014 50%

Straight Rye, United States / Kentucky 70cl Ref: 18941

A must have LMDW

When it comes to rye whiskey, three names immediately spring to mind: Sazerac, Van Winkle and Rittenhouse. The first two are extremely hard to come by in France. The same cannot be said for Rittenhouse, a tribute to the first colonials who landed in Philadelphia. Representing the best value for money in its category, it is a shining example of its kind. The pride and joy of Max Shapira, owner of the family-run Heaven Hill distillery in Louisville, where this authentic rye whiskey is made. La Maison du Whisky has been importing and distributing this multi-award-winning classic for over 19 years now - and we still love its violet liquorice notes as much as ever.

Made from 51% minimum rye, rye whiskey was long classified as an ‘endangered species’. Rye has been experiencing the full throes of revival since the early 2000s, yet is still reduced to a handful of worthy examples. The 100 proof Rittenhouse version is refreshingly modern and is one of the most appealing examples of this revival.

Profile: intense, fresh. Notes of rye, precious wood and heady florals. A fruity (orange, greengage plum, candied lemon) and spicy (cardamom, nutmeg) richness.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : mahogany with coppery glints.
  • Nose : intense, concentrated. Rye flexes its muscles to the maximum, displaying its power and prowess. It is surrounded by notes of precious wood and balsamic notes (eucalyptus, cedar). Heady florals gradually make an appearance (lily, concentrate of iris). Very open, it displays a generous fruitiness (orange, greengage plum).
  • Palate : rich, full of freshness. Notes of freshly-cut grass and coriander lay side-by-side with candied citrus fruits (lemon, bergamot orange). Noble spices (cardamom, nutmeg) set the pace on the mid-palate. Turning slightly salty, empyreumatic (lime tree, cedar) and exotic (guava, passion fruit). A very fine-grain texture.
  • Overall : gourmand and solid at the same time. The precious wood ensures continuity with the end-of-palate profile. The rye confidently asserts its rigour and restraint. Dark chocolate and citrus fruits (mandarin, grapefruit) lend it incredible elegance. The retronasal olfaction here is spicy (cinnamon) and the empty glass is liquorice-inspired and fruity (mirabelle plum).
