70cl / 50% abv
This fine example of rye whiskey (that's with an 'e'!) comes to us from Heaven Hill distillery in Kentucky, USA. Commemorating the famous Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia, a public park and the surrounding affluent and desirable neighbourhood. This expression is aged for four years and bottled-in-bond at 100° proof – or 50% abv to us Scots.
Nose: dried fruits and toffee with some sweet pepper notes.
Palate: clean and rich with cocoa, zesty citrus and vanilla, followed by cinnamon and nutmeg spice.
Finish: maple wood spice lingers on.
