Ever since it was named North American Whiskey of the year, there has been a shortage of Rittenhouse Rye. Its cult-like following with bartenders and home tipplers has drained the nation’s supply of this high-quality rye. Luckily, we have an inside connection in Kentucky and were able to secure a large allocation to fulfill everyone’s needs. Explosive aromas of cinnamon and crushed pepper leap from the glass while sweet oak, clove and caramel round out the palate and a healthy dose of spicy rye finishes strong. Grab a bottle or two to stash away for a rainy day. This one won’t be around for long.
