Roundstone Rye reviewed in Wine Enthusiast

Wine Enthusiast July 2015We were delighted to receive a review in the recent issue of Wine Enthusiast for Roundstone Rye.  The bottle reviewed was submitted over 2 years ago, so we almost forgot completely about it.  Since then, the whisky has gotten older and more complex, having the benefit of aging in our off-premise barn/rickhouse.  The newest bottles being sold today... well, we just keep getting better!

89 - Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye (USA; Catoctin Creek Distilling, Purcellville, VA).  This single-barrel whiskey is made from 100% rye and aged for less than two years.  In the glass, it has an orange-amber hue and aroma that melds oak, malt and vanilla.  On the palate, vanilla leads, with oakiness winding into a baking-spice finish.  A good match for Manhattans.
