Rittenhouse Very Rare 21-Year-Old Single Barrel Straight Rye Whisky

The bouquet offers intriguing flax/wax and grainy/bakery odors. The palate entry is oaky sweet, minerally and roasted; the midpalate offers sap-like, semisweet tastes of honey, cane syrup, cocoa and tobacco leaf. Finishes with vitality as the sweet notes turn honeyed. A blockbuster that defines straight rye whisky. P.P.
