Louisville (Heaven Hill Distillery), Kentucky, USA
This is Rittenhouse aged for six years and bottled at 110 proof. You’d think it’d be rocket fuel but it’s a thoroughly enjoyable rye whiskey. It still has wheels but the extra aging has tempered it, developing into more nuanced flavors of cherry, cinnamon, and cola. The proof is definitely there but have to be more worried about how easy it is to drink than blowing out your palate.
