Catoctin Creek

Roundstone Rye Organic Single Barrel Whisky

Ginger, caramel, baked green apple, poached pear, apple blossom, slight iodine, cinnamon, dried pineapple and sage aromas. Prickly entry with pine nettle, candied ginger, lemon oil, pineapple, orange peel, lime pith, cinnamon oil giving a capsaicin bite, oregano, rosemary and clove. Spicy and bold, neat. Chilies, eucalyptus and anise flutter behind. Numby. Nice dodge at the end avoids a medicinally disappointing finish. Good stuff. #rye #whisky #whiskey #ryewhiskey #ryewhisky #CatoctinCreek #catoctincreekroundstonerye #copperpotstill #vawhisky #potstill #singlebarrel — 9 months ago

Nice straw color with green apple on the nose. Smooth hints of minerality and peach. Nice Viognier! — 7 years ago

Maryland Syrah 2016

There is something really fascinating yet mysteriously about this 100% Syrah build. The candied nature of the ripe plums is seemingly out of balance… It’s like it’s almost too good to be true. I’m not sure what was done in the cellar but this is a consistent taste profile from this wine maker… Cab Franc place the same tune… And mysterious taste up here with his Chardonnay as well. i’m not saying these are flaws, it’s just remarkable how much Ripe and Rich character is extracted yet with such aromatic sweetness.  very nice to drink with our meal… Just need to do a little more research on how it got to this form factor. Paired with Provencially seasoned (lavender) sausages & peppers. I think what I have a hard time believing is that this tiny block of Western Maryland Syrah Can find a niche between Australian and Washington state profiles… It was that BIG !?! — 10 months ago
