The peaches and dried bananas from the nose carry over, and now they’re nicely mixed with white pepper with a dash of spice. Rittenhouse Rye doesn’t have a heavy mouthfeel however it’s also not light by any means. It’s really nicely balanced overall.
- Woodford Reserve 1838 Style White Corn45,2%1201838 Style White Corn was created by adjusting the whiskey’s first source of flavor – grain. The use of white corn instead of traditional yellow corn complements additional grains in the whiskey and allows for a sharper whiskey that’s lighter in body with a softer, sweeter, fruit-forward profile.
Aroma: Soft and nutty with a malty grain note sweetened with apple fruit, hints of spun sugar, cooked sugar and vanilla. Glimpses of cedar and clove spiciness through a delicate veil of oak smoke.
Flavor: Shortbread and a subtly cool lemon custard note are lightly spiced and dried with a dash of white pepper.
Finish: Long and slightly dry with a lingering sweet, buttery texture.
