The best we make! Our most awarded whisky. This whisky has never received anything less than a gold medal!
The cask proof version of our ever-popular Roundstone Rye is a very special expression. Released at approximately 58% ABV (it varies depending on the individual barrels), this is seriously strong whisky! Delicious, dark, complex and ridiculously smooth for the proof, Roundstone Rye Cask Proof is released only about twice per year.
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.

Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye Whisky 92 Proof...$39.99
Compare to $45.99 at Total Wine and More
Single Barrel
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."
The aroma is oaky and warm, while the drying palate is tinged with cocoa and lemon peel. It's soft and easy-sipping, with just enough peppery spice to keep it interesting. Sip or mix this 100% rye singlebarrel whiskey
