Catoctin Creek Mosby's Spirit, 40%

Price: $38 Issue: Fall 2011 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

The second craft rye I'm revisiting. Mosby's is still 100% organic rye and unaged, but the nose is more fun: some green pear and melon esters in there with the grassy rye spice. It's nicely smooth on the tongue, delivers exactly what the nose promised, plus a shot of fresh-cracked black pepper…and a much longer finish these days. Greatly improved; a good white whiskey.
