Intensely woody aromas and succulent marshmallow, with scents of bakery and lanolin dash out. The broad palate initially oozes butter cream, dark caramel, and brown sugar tastes; the midpalate has a distinct focus on the grain aspect as the flavour becomes toasty, fruity and honeyed. The finish is honey sweet, decadent and maple-like. Made in a classic Pennsylvania style at the Heaven Hill distillery in Kentucky, Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whiskey has been aged for at least four years in barrel and bottled at 100 proof. To be called "Bottled in Bond" it also has to be the product of a single distillery, made in a single season in a single year.
