This 25 year old rye is produced by Heaven Hill as part of their Oldest Rittenhouse Rye series. It is a single barrel rye, which means that there may be some slight variation in the marketplace from bottle to bottle. It was aged in the coolest part of their warehouse to allow the rye to mature consistently. It's one of the oldest, if not THE oldest, ryes in the marketplace.

Tasting Notes

"Considering its age, a lot of vibrant flavors are present on the palate. Its prolonged hibernation in the barrel gives it noticeable aromatic woodsy accents, but those are nicely tempered with sweetness and spice. A bit of tobacco smoke wafts into the finish - kind of like drinking on a park bench a few feet away from a charismatic gent with a pipe. Definitely tastes mature, but not yet over the hill."
