“Screw top! So we don't get to POP!“

We found a review that we did back in October that never got published 🤷‍♂️ , so here’s our opinion on Rittenhouse Rye Whiskey! From the prestigious Heaven Hill Distillery, this rye whiskey is, to us, the embodiment of simple, no bullshit whiskey. It doesn’t try to trick you with an overly complex pallate, but rather gives you a sweet, spicy, experience from nose to finish. It’s not that this whiskey blew us away by any means, but we really enjoyed everything about it, including the price! Per the usual, we look at five different categories in our own terms: Bottle, Appearance, Smell, Value, and Taste.
