I am sitting here with a glass of Rittenhouse 21 Rye and I am not sure what I am tasting. This is the second time I have had a pour from this bottle, and both times I have had to remind myself that it is Rye. Now all the other Ryes in my collection, from bottom shelf Overholt all the way to the Willetts are not like this, they are all obviously Rye with a capital R. This glass tastes a lot like EC 18, grass and oak are the predominent flavors with tobacco and mint in the background. There is none of the Ryecrisp flavors that come leaping out of the others. Anybody want to guess why this is the case?
