They make a 100% rye- it's a cask strength that's finished out in Maple Syrup barrels - I watched Whisky Vault guys do a review on it and they were kind of blown away by it. It's not what you'd expect - I have a maple bourbon from a distiller close to my sister, who gave it to me. I can drink it but that's about it.I've seen Catoctin Creek in the stores near me. Which bottle are you looking for? There is also a distillery up in Baltimore called old line that makes a good whiskey as well.
We stay with one of my Aunts in Martinsburg when visiting, but Catoctin Creek doesn't distribute to WVa for some odd reason - That distillery is only on the other side of the Blue Ridge so that seemed odd as hell.
Funny thing, i went to a liquor store up the road called Penn Liquors- First time I've seen someone walking around giving tastings out LOL! They were doing Roku Vodka - I said hell yea I'll try it and then told em I had the gin version and loved it. Next thing you know I had 4 or 5 people all listening to me brag abut it LOL! ~ but I only went there for scotch and bought my first bottle of Glendronach, and it's pretty good! I drank it out of my Aunts Irish crystal she had shipped to the states on her last trip there - - edit - Roundstone Rye is their thing- won a ton of accolades.
