Rittenhouse Straight Rye 100 Proof, Bottled in Bond, it said in the bottle. And "How sweet it is to be loved by you", it almost made me sing.
Rittenhouse 100 Proof BIB is like the 1968 movie How Sweet It Its! Produced with tradition. And sweet it is in every way. I noticed, that only little bit of water addition is enough, even though this has 50% ABV level.
Nose: Sweet maple syrup right at the start. Sweetness continues with caramel and tropical fruit notes and with some sweet rye.
Taste: Dark and sugared rye make you want the taste last forever. Smooth and sweet, a bit crispy with mint. Notes of caramel and oak.
Finish: Nice length but a bit light with oak and spices and bitter notes.
Balance: Great rye whisky, without the light finish probably a 90 point dram for me.
