23 Year Old Very Rare Single Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey 750ml
Heaven Hill presented 23-year-old, 50% ABV, not chill filtered, single barrel, Kentucky straight rye whiskey, called Rittenhouse Very Rare. The whiskey is from the same batch of rye, made in October of 1984, as last year's release. When the 21-year-old came out it was just a little shy of its 22nd birthday. They waited a little longer with these, so they're just barely 23. This rare vintage 1984 23 year old Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey comes from the series of selected single barrel bottlings presented by Heaven Hill in 2007, was only available in small numbers and is without question one of the best rye whiskeys on the market today. The maturation of the rye whiskey took place in selected American oak barrels in Bardstown at Continental Distilling, the single barrel rye whiskey was bottled without cooling filtration from barrel no. 14 with 50.0% vol. / 100 proof with indication of the barrel number and individual bottle number and was only available in a few countries.An ingenious rye whiskey and a successful example of the special style and extraordinary quality of the Heaven Hill distillery. With one of the oldest rye whiskeys and rarity for connoisseurs, collectors and lovers of extraordinary whiskeys - Barrel No. 14 is the rarest bottling in the series and almost hard to find

About the brand
Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whisky has a storied past with a heritage that commemorates Philadelphia's famous Rittenhouse Square. Bottled-in-Bond, today's Rittenhouse carries the distinct, spicy flavor that is long associated with the brand. Rittenhouse is the Rye Whisky of choice for both mixologists and whisky aficionados alike. By the 1970s, whiskey had become less popular in America, as clear spirits—vodka in particular—grew in popularity. Bourbon sales were dropping and rye became nearly extinct. The few original rye makers that were still around in Pennsylvania (and elsewhere) struggled and began to close. Continental went out in flames in the early 1980s. Heaven Hill Distillery swooped in and bought the rights to several rye brands, including Rittenhouse, as the original distilleries went out of business. Heaven Hill introduced their version of Rittenhouse Rye in the 1990s. Although Heaven Hill is, of course, famous for being a bourbon maker, the company deserves a lot of credit for keeping rye whiskey alive in the US. Even when bourbon started to become a popular drinking choice once again, rye was slower to reemerge. For many years, Heaven Hill spent only a single day per year distilling rye whiskey—the rest of the year was devoted to bourbon. But they kept it alive, even if only once a year. Over the last few years, rye has finally become popular again (although still nowhere near as popular as bourbon). Kentucky distilleries are devoting more time to making rye, and craft distilleries all over the country are introducing young rye whiskeys. Perhaps the most exciting development in American craft distilling is the reemergence of Monongahela-style rye.
