Score: 87 (Very Good, Strong Recommendation) "This one goes to 11!"
– Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2015

"This single-barrel rye is suitable for sipping or a dessert pairing. Look for bold sugar-cookie aromas and confectionary richness on the palate: vanilla, cocoa, hazelnut, maple sugar and mocha. The moderately long finish is marked by lemon peel and nutmeg."
– Kara Newman, Wine Enthusiast, January 2020

"Amber with an aroma of mint, spices and oak — inviting. A bright, sharp spiciness in the taste from the rye, clean, well-rounded and smooth. Gingerbread and fresh grasses. A solid rye."
– Modern Distillery Age, September 11, 2015

"A bottle of Roundstone Rye 92-proof is what you're looking for if you want your socks knocked off. Just the amount of spice you'd expect from a great rye, but it won't have you breathing fire."
– Men's Journal, September 3, 2014

--------------

Our "Distiller's Edition" of our very popular Roundstone Rye.  Only one in every ten barrels gets selected to be in the Roundstone Rye "92 Proof" whisky.

This whisky is the culmination of several years of planning.  "For a few years now, we've been putting whisky away for storage," remarked Becky Harris, Chief Distiller and President of Catoctin Creek Distilling Company.  "We pulled some of the more interesting barrels from the back of the barn and decided to release these at a higher proof:  a whisky specially curated for flavor, while still being remarkably smooth, as is our existing 80 proof Roundstone."

"We are very excited about this new product," said Scott Harris, Founder and General Manager of Catoctin Creek.  "We discussed this new product with customers like Jack Rose Whisky Saloon, The Passenger, and our distributors, and all agreed that this would be a great new product for the distillery.  And what's cool, since we're a small distillery, we can be responsive to this kind of market input."

Suggested retail price $52.79 per bottle.  46% ABV, 750 ml
