Whiskey Review: Templeton Rye

Although Bourbon and Irish whiskey may be more widely available and celebrated, don’t forget about Rye. Made from mash that is 51% or more rye- bourbon is mash made of 50% or more corn. If you find bourbon to be sweet and candy like- you may prefer the sharper, spicier Rye. A rye we strongly recommend is Templeton Small Batch Rye Whiskey. You can get a bottle for about $40. Templeton was first made during Prohibition. According to their website, Al Capone was a big fan and his gang helped distribute it to speakeasies around the country. It continued to be distilled on a small scare until 2006, when it was finally produced and distributed legally. It smells spicy, and grass-like. It has a kick to it, and it really stays on the breath. It tastes like toffee, but is noticeably less sweet than bourbon. It goes down mostly smooth, but it does have a bite at the end. Templeton Rye was brewed to match the original flavor of the Prohibition era Whiskey, but also to meet standards to be called a Rye.

Stock your home bar with Templeton Small Batch Rye Whiskey. Drink it neat, on the rocks, in an Old Fashioned, or in a Whiskey Smash.
