September 24, 2015, Purcellville, VA – Catoctin Creek is proud to announce the release of two of our newest expressions of Roundstone Rye Cask Proof! The Roundstone Rye has won gold medals from San Francisco to New York to London, and was recently called a “huge rye” and “great fun” in the 2015 edition of Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible. And now, we have two versions to share at cask proof.
The first expression is our Roundstone Rye "Maple Finished" Cask Proof, where we've taken those old maple-syrup barrels from the Langdon Wood maple syrup that we sell in our tasting room, and we re-filled them with whisky. The result is not cloying or sweet, but a smooth maple flavor that blends perfectly into the whisky, and a maple finish that goes on, and on, and on, and on... Only 26 cases will be available in the tasting room for sale!
The second expression is our Roundstone Rye "Peach Brandy Finished" Cask Proof, where we've taken one of our spent peach brandy barrels and finished the whisky in that barrel. In this case, again, the subtle fruitiness of the peach comes into the mid-palate, and a sweet peachy finish closes out the whisky. Only 8 (yes, EIGHT) cases are available in the tasting room for sale! This one will absolutely sell out right away, so please get yours ASAP to ensure you get some.
Both whisky expressions will also be released in limited quantities into the Maryland, DC, and California markets. Be sure to check our Whiskey Wednesday in DC schedule for your chance to get a free tasting of these newest expressions!
