Boy I like it, nice and smooth, yet a little spicy!
Old Overholt Rye Whiskey
Whiskey /40% ABV / Kentucky, United States
- Rye Whiskey
- Kentucky, United States
Old Overholt is the oldest of The Olds, a relic you can drink. This famous Straight Rye Whiskey has a distinctive ﬂavor and appeal that, after Prohibition, made it the most popular spirit in the country. Agreeable means you get along. And Old Overholt does just that. It’s renowned for its outstanding mixability in classic cocktails like the Old Style Manhattan (look it up). The one and only Old Overholt Rye Whiskey is 80 Proof and aged 3 years.View all products by Old OverholtCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Excellent in a Manhattan.

Great whiskey at this price point. Compares well to bulleit. Don’t tell too many people and make it hard to find!
Get a fedora, a .38 revolver, and a pack of Luckies and just tuck in. This is not snob whiskey. It's the real deal, in the way that Jim Beam is a sound workingman's tipple. Price (or lack thereof) is not always an indication of quality. Just the trick for watching some old noir films.

First, for the quality, which is excellent, the price can't be beat. But I'm prejudiced, as Old Overholt was the only rye available when I sat at the now defunct Tune Inn in Washington DC in 1974 at 1 am after work, introduced to me by the bartender, and now known as a bartender's favorite. For me it's pure nostalgia, which has a taste of its own. I've had a $150 bottle of Whistle Pig and I would still choose Old Overholt. Breath in deeply before sipping. Are there smoother ryes? Yes, but you can't go wrong here.

It’s a decent, inexpensive rye.

Solid mixing rye; probably not a sipper.

Especially at the price-point, this is a tasty, easy-drinking rye. It's worth drinking neat and also makes a mean Manhattan.

This is my favorite for making (Rye) Whiskey Sours.
