Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye Distiller's Edition 92 Proof
Rye — Virginia, USA
Tasted December 6, 2021
Nose: Intense dill, peaches, vanilla and light hay / dirt. Aniseed and dill merge into a rye bread scent. Very light chocolate and apple nose. Taste: Very thin and watery open of dirty hay that slowly devolves into heavy rye spice and caramel with a bright dill and menthol finish. Water brings everything out. Light toffee and caramel covered peaches with mint and dill with the dirty hay note buried towards the end and a spicy finish. Maybe needs more time in the bottle but kinda underwhelming at least for my tastes. Would probably be a good cocktail base.
