Founded in 2009, Catoctin Creek Distillery has been around a lot longer than most realize. For the “Distiller’s Edition” of their Roundstone Rye, the company selects 10% of their aging barrels they feel offer an interesting flavor profile and release them as a single barrel product at 12 proof points higher than their standard release. This particular single barrel tastes a bit on the young side, especially for being at least 4 years old. It’s a clean tasting distillate that drinks extremely easily, but lacks necessary complexity.
