While Rittenhouse may put a smile on your face, it's not because it tastes funny. This rye whisky is quite good.

Here are my notes:

Nose: Maple candy, marble rye bread, caramel, vanilla bean, oak.

Taste: Caramel, dark chocolate, rye, cherry stones, oak.

Finish: Mexican hot chocolate, licorice, oak, cloves from the Spice Islands.

Let this whisky "break in" after opening. It needs a few days. While it can taste a little bitter when the bottle is first opened, this soon passes and yields to some remarkable complexity, depth, and deliciously sweet flavors that are never sickly sweet like some bourbons. A one trick pony this is not.
