NOSE: Rye spice | Distillate | Lemon | Punchy PALATE: Lemon zest | Anise | Unaged distillate | Vanilla extract | Punchy and youthful FINISH: Summer fruits | Lemon | Rye spice | White peppercorns | Youthful OVERRALL: Nicely refreshing and clean, Catoctin Creek's Roundstone Rye Cask Proof whiskey is released twice year per year in single barrel form. Notably distilled onsite, this rye is also not labelled as straight, which suggests it's aged less than two years. While the taste of the distillate is present throughout the sip, and the label should probably carry an age statement, it shows exceptional promise and I can't wait to taste this whiskey at a higher age.
