Catoctin Creek Rabble Rouser Rye Whiskey
Catoctin Creek // Virginia, USA
This release from Catoctin Creek uses the same mash bill recipe as its Roundstone Rye whiskey (100% rye mash), but distills it at a lower proof for a fuller flavor profile. This is bottled in bond, so is distilled in one season. Bottled at 100 proof after four years of aging. Next release expected September 2018.
RyeMash bill at least 51% rye; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"Cocoa powder dusted chocolate truffles lead on the nose, along with a strong component of rye spice, and spearmint. A rich, chewy palate showcases dark chocolate pretzels and salted caramel, with dry oak and baking spices. The finish is full and meandering, with cedar wood, menthol, chocolate, and spice. A craft distillery comes of age in your glass."
