The “new” Rittenhouse Rye is the whisky I hate the most. All the good reviews for this $23 rye are holdouts from the days when it was being produced by the previous distillery in the wake of the fire, and once they changed the label and started producing it in-house again it is uniformly terrible. I will never forgive myself for not buying up like 60 cases of the stuff when it was the black label, it was glorious. I will buy the new stuff every now and again just to see if they have righted the ship because it STILL gets good reviews and every time I’m horrified at myself. Pikesville is close to the old black label but at $50.
