Product description

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.

    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.

    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.

    Best for a Manhattan. Spiciness balances well with vermouth and bitters.

FAQs

Yes, whiskey is gluten-free, thanks to the distillation process used to make it. The Celiac Disease Foundation concluded that it can safely be considered gluten-free, though it’s still possible that some people with high gluten sensitivity or celiac disease could have a reaction to whiskeys created from certain grains.
Whiskey can include a large number of different distilled spirits made from fermented grain mash — usually cereal grains like rye, barley malt, wheat and corn. The drink undergoes aging in wooden containers, most often oak.
One of the reasons whiskey is so popular is that there’s no single way to enjoy it. There’s the purist route — straight and neat, no mixers, no ice — but what fun is being a purist? You can add water to it, which can enhance certain bottles’ flavors or you can add it with other ingredients to make delicious mixed drinks. It’s the foundation of the Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, the Whiskey Sour and many others.
