Roundstone Rye Review on American Craft Spirits

Roundstone RyeFrom American Craft Spirits:

Score: 88

When Gene Wilder swings open the doors of the chocolate factory’s inner sanctum you can only imagine what it smells like – sugar, candy, sweet fruit with a river of fresh chocolate winding its way around trees dripping with gummies and gobstoppers. If you could have this experience (via Smell-O-Vision) it would be a lot like nosing Catoctin Creek’s Roudstone Rye. Like the first few seconds of a dusty piece of Juicy Fruit gum, Roundstone Rye is full of young rye flavor. Although an infant by aged spirits standards (spending 2.5 months on oak) this rye shows a fairly mature flavor profile. You can still taste some of the surface char in the spirit, mostly to the detriment of the finish, but the nose and mid-palate are certainly (like Charlie) wise beyond their age.
