Templeton Small Batch Rye Whiskey
Templeton Small Batch Rye Whiskey. 40% ABV.
Starting with a formula born out of a family's need to maintain their livelihood during the Prohibition era, our master distillers utilize the original Kerkhoff family recipe…unique for the remarkably high rye content of its mash. For while today a mere 51 percent of the mash bill must be rye for a whiskey to legally be called a "rye." Templeton Rye uses a mash made up of more than 90 percent rye grains (and malted barley for the remainder).
Aroma dry, grassy, Christmas spice
Taste hint of caramel, butterscotch, toffee and allspice
Body deep amber color, lingering and slightly chewy
Finish wonderful balance, clean and silk smooth
Only dedication to the entire process can achieve the proper balance that gives Templeton Rye its great rye character and surprisingly smooth finish that Jim Murray of the Whiskey Bible described as "a huge, unmistakable rye.
