Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye 92 Proof "Distiller's Edition" is a premium rye whiskey bottled at 92 proof. It is made solely from rye grain and matured for a minimum of two years in new oak barrels that have been charred. This aging process imparts a rich, flavorful profile to the whiskey.

Description

The Aging Process and Rye Spice

The rye whiskey is made from 100% rye grain, giving it a distinct spicy character that rye whiskies are known for. This charring process adds rich notes of caramel, vanilla, and toast to the whiskey, complementing the rye spice.

Aromatic Complexity: Beyond the Spice

While the rye spice is a defining characteristic, the Distiller’s Edition offers more than just a fiery kick. On the nose, you’ll be greeted with a complex bouquet of aromas. Look for warm baking spices like cinnamon and clove, mingled with the earthy scent of freshly baked rye bread. Hints of sweetness might also peek through, suggesting hints of vanilla or honey.

Flavor Profile: Bold Yet Balanced

The first sip delivers a burst of rye spice, but it’s balanced by the rich notes imparted by the aging process. Oaky undertones provide a touch of dryness and structure.

Lingering Finish and Versatility

The extended finish leaves a satisfying warmth and the distinctive rye spice on the tongue, lingering pleasantly. This rye whiskey is delightful when savored neat, allowing you to fully grasp its intricate character. It also pairs excellently with ice, which enhances the flavors as it melts. For those who enjoy cocktails, the Distiller’s Edition can impart a spicy twist to traditional rye-based drinks such as the Manhattan or Old Fashioned.
