"Do you long for a robust whiskey? Rabble Rouser is easily the best I've had all year."
Astor Wines and Spirits, November 10, 2017

"[At four years old]... Catoctin Creek [is] one of just a few craft distilleries producing rye whiskey of that age."
– Jake Emen, Washington City Paper, May 22, 2015

"At four years old, this is one of the oldest craft whiskies on the market. Scott Harris and team pull out all the stops for this very special limited offering distilling the 100% rye mash to a lower proof capturing a significant amount of extra flavors typically lost to the stills and bottling at 100 proof. Harris is planting his flag firmly in the territory of traditional American Whiskey and if this bottling is any indication of the future, well lets just say it is looking very bright. Notes include nectarines, clover honey, deep earthy spice, forest, sandalwood, cigar tobacco, uncured bacon, a hint of mesquite, white peaches and peanuts."
Astor Wines and Spirits, November 30, 2015

Rabble Rouser is the latest rye whisky offering from Catoctin Creek.  Distilled from 100% rye and bottled in bond, the Rabble Rouser differs from its cousin, Roundstone Rye, in that it is distilled at a lower proof, allowing lots of earthy goodness from the grain to come through in the spirit.

The whisky is aged for four years, making it among the oldest craft whiskey in the United States presently, and twice the legal age requirement for "straight rye whiskey."

"Where Roundstone Rye is sort of restrained and elegant," say Scott Harris, founder of the distillery, "Rabble Rouser is more unruly and vivacious." 

Look for it to knock your socks off with release four in September 2018.

Suggested retail price $95.99 per bottle.  50% ABV, 750 ml
