Rittenhouse Straight Rye

Rittenhouse Straight Rye whiskey (Heaven Hill Distillery – Louisville, KY) is 100 proof and distilled in the “Pennsylvania Stlye.”  The palate is chocolate orange sweet and quite spicy, with leather, tobacco and oak.  At around $35-$45 it makes for a decent value rye.  Stands by itself just fine but would stand up to an ice cube, drop of water, or for use in a cocktail.
