Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye Whiskey exudes youth throughout its sip. While the flavors present are adequate, they tend to be lacking in depth. Even though single barrels can always vary, expectations are often set high since those barrels are usually carefully selected. Founded in 2009, I was surprised to see that Catoctin Creek Rye has no age statement associated with it. Its youthful flavor profile combined with its low proof leads me to believe it's on the younger side of the age scale. The bottle being reviewed comes from batch number 20A10.
