Templeton Rye 6 Year
Templeton // Indiana (bottled in Iowa), USA
This 6 year-old whiskey was released in June 2016. Templeton Rye is a brand that was introduced in 2006. Distilled in Indiana by MGP (formerly Lawrenceburg Distillers of Indiana), the rye is made from a mash bill of 95% rye and 5% barley. The whiskey is bottled in Iowa after the addition of a "proprietary formula" as well as local purified water. Templeton broke ground on a distillery in Iowa in 2017 with plans to distill their own whiskey.
RyeMash bill at least 51% rye; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"This veers away from the main pack of American rye whiskeys of today. The aroma is surprisingly sweet and tropical: Canned pineapples, vanilla cream, shaved coconut, and cream soda. The palate is initially juicy while showing more vanilla and cream soda. However, it becomes more robust and spicy at the finish."
