There whiskey strikes a great balance of cooking spices with a little heat from the alcohol on the back of the tongue, making this a really nice sip. In fact, it’s one of the better rye whiskeys I’ve tasted in recent months, and I wish I’d picked up more of it. Very nice.

Rittenhouse Rye Bottled-in-Bond Review

Rittenhouse should be considered one of the better value pours on the market, and one of the richer, more complex rye whiskeys available. Perhaps it’s Heaven Hill’s cost of money, maybe it’s just good business sense, but Heaven Hill continues to produce outstanding whiskeys at great values that remain available regularly on shelves.

Willett XCF Version 1.0 Review

It’s just a little too unbalanced to give a solid recommendation, but it’s not a complete whiff on Willett’s part. I’m sure this style will have its fans just the way it is. This feels like a liqueur crying out to be used in a cocktail rather than sipped neat, and for $150, it may price itself out of that market.
