RYE

The original grain for whiskey in the USA has finally reached its apex with the Rittenhouse 25-Year-Old Rye. Its spice and depth of flavor are so intensely satisfying, your brain will take you on a journey while you are tasting it. Rye lovers should purchase this pure American genius without hesitation, regardless of its price tag — because this unique combination of flavor profile, heat, balance and class may not come this way again. We found barrel number fourteen, bottle number two, to be 100 proof of perfection.

Price: $250
