Catoctin Creek Hot Honey Rye Whiskey (Virginia)
Producer Notes: Catoctin Creek Hot Honey Rye is a reprise of a very popular Barrel Select offering we did in 2022, and now we're introducing it as a permanent line extension.
When you take our beautiful, pot stilled 100% rye whisky, and you add three types of local Virginia honey (wildflower, clover, and buckwheat) and an infusion of chile peppers, you get something amazing. Because we use real honey, the aroma and flavor of honey are dominant in this whisky, and the honey gives a very pleasant viscosity/mouth feel.
Just as you're savoring the whisky, the peppers come in with a surprising and delightful bit of heat. Smooth and sweet, with a ZING! This is a fun one!
