September 18, 2014, Purcellville, VA – Catoctin Creek is proud to announce the release of our newest expression of Roundstone Rye Cask Proof! Bottled at 59.8% alcohol by volume, or 119.6 proof, this is one seriously strong dram of whisky!
This expression of cask proof is very special. Starting with our classic single-barrel Roundstone Rye, using 100% eco-ganic rye, and as always, made by us, this expression was aged first in Minnesota white oak and then finished in a Bordeaux red wine barrel that previously aged our 1757 Virginia Brandy. This expression, batch B14E3, is dark, almost reddish in color, with a deep woody, caramel taste with that characteristic rye snap, and a noticeably fruity nose from the presence of the grape. Truly spectacular, and only 283 bottles of this one were produced. It will not last!
Catoctin Creek Cask Proof was called a “huge rye” and “great fun” in the 2014 edition of Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
Limited amounts of this expression will also be released into our markets in New York, Maryland, DC, Massachusetts.
