My first experience with Rye whisky was earlier in the year, when I tasted the Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye. Rye based whisky is relatively unknown in SA. I liked the spiciness of Rye and looked around for some more. I found a few interesting expressions at Bottleshop. They do stock a few, such as the Pappy van Winkle Family Reserve 13 yo at R 19 000 a bottle. Hmmm…Slightly out of my budget. Fortunately for me, I found this bottle of Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whiskey at WhiskyBrother for a lot less.

I got this bottle of Gentleman Jack as a gift from someone about a year ago, and it is certainly time that I open and try it. I have tasted the Jack Daniel’s Old No 7 before and gave it a Very Good rating. Certainly not our favourite dram, but it will do in a pinch (perhaps a very tight pinch, but it will do). Will this premium version of Tennessee whiskey impress us more?
