Catoctin Creek Barrel Select Rye Zinfandel Cask Finish #2414 59.5% 70cl
Catoctin Creek is a fantastic craft distillery based in Purcellville, Virginia. Husband and wife team Becky and Scott Harris set up the company to produce high quality spirits with a focus on a range of rye whiskies that are second-to-none. Master Distiller Becky utilises her experience in chemical engineering to ensure a consistency and depth of flavour are continually produced, with Scott guiding the tiller of marketing and sales.
The Barrel Select series from the distillery is a range of bottlings from individual casks offering something a bit special. Originally brought in to form a tasting event with Scott, this is one of four bottlings that were finished in a variety of barrels that previously held other wines, beers and spirits.In this instance we have a release of 126 bottles of 100% rye whiskey aged for 2 years in virgin oak casks before a finish of 11 months in a barrel that previously held Zinfandel red wine. There's heaps of dry red fruit and tannin on the nose in particular, which carries through to the palate immediately. There's a slight astringent note, not off-putting but something that really makes this stand out from the other releases in the range. The wine influence is clear, and if you're not a red wine it may be too wine-y for your liking, but I love the fact this is something quite different that still works really well.
