New York, NY (September 21, 2012) – TheFiftyBest.com recently hosted an American Rye Tasting, where 19 contenders were voted for “Best Rye” awards for 2012. TheFiftyBest.com is very pleased to announce that Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye was awarded a Gold medal.
Using professional criteria, the ryes were served “blindly” to the 18 pre-qualified judges, and rated on a 1-5 point scoring system with 5 being the best. After totaling up the scores, the rye whiskies were ranked based on the impressions of the judges, and awarded medals based on a set range of final point scores received.
