Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye

2 Years Old
40% ABV

We were introduced to Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye through a friend who lives near the distillery. He was so eager to have us taste this spirit that he delivered the Society a bottle free of charge. Like the WhistlePig Old World and the Anchor Distilling Old Potrero, the Roundstone Rye is made from 100% rye mash.

Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye was tasted at Meeting No. 37 on June 24, 2015. Out of 5, we rated it very highly at 3.71.

Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 37 in June 2015

Jameson  •  6/24/2015  •  4.5

Nose - sweet taffy, mouth-watering. Taste - wet and smooth, well-balanced whiskey flavor. Finish - delicious sweet lingers with toffee goodness.

Floral, store fruit. A refreshing summer sipper.

Joel  •  6/24/2015  •  4.0

Beautiful nose! Incredibly sweet aroma given the rye composition. Smooth upfront. Spice, complex. What a value!

Charlotte  •  6/24/2015  •  3.5

Sweet on the nose. Vanilla extract. Credit to Gavin: BANANA LAFFY TAFFY! Tangy on the palate. Lots of citrus. Really hot but not obtrusive. Pretty floral as you continue to drink. Essence of lilies and a little bit of green bell pepper.

Brian W.  •  6/24/2015  •  3.5

I am so struck by how smooth this is…and I never really use that adjective to describe spirits here at the sss. Its sweet but def not in a terrible way. Tastes kind of like a semi spiced saltwater taffy.

Dennis  •  6/24/2015  •  3.0

Honey and warm wood nose. Well-balanced with slight citrus hint on finish. Juicy fruit gum.
