Rittenhouse 23 Year Old is fantastic achievement from Heaven Hill. The distillery has a range of different types of American whiskey in its portfolio including bourbon, wheated and rye. Rittenhouse is a straight rye brand.

Aging any whisky for 23 years is a challenge for even the most skilled distillers. American whiskies typically spend between four and eight years in the barrel, but with Rittenhouse 23 Year Old, Heaven Hill wanted to produce something unique and rare.

Rye whisky is made using an ingredient list that is at least 51% rye. It has a sweet taste combined with pepper, spice and oak (not surprising given the length of time it has spent maturing). Another characteristic is its astonishing softness. Rye whisky often has a harder edge than its bourbon cousin, but Rittenhouse 23 Year Old, while assertive, is soft – it has been described as a “velvet glove”.

Rittenhouse 23 Year Old has a lot going for it: because of its age it is unique; it is rare as it was made in limited quantities; and, it is critically acclaimed for its taste. This combination makes it a collectors’ item, something that is reflected in the price.

So if collecting or investing is your thing, this is a great choice. If you want the bottle to drink, though, you might find this the best aged whisky you have ever tried -- and you would not be alone. More...
