After two months of daily rotation, the barrels were dumped and re-filled with Templeton Straight Rye. The rye matured for an addition two months and before bottling at 92 proof. Only 24,000 bottles were produced for the global market with availability to begin October 2019.

Tasting Notes

"This is a whiskey for the fans of the dark and brooding styles of rye. The nose is compact and nervy with a dominant black tea aroma accompanied by molasses and burnt crust. The flavors are fairly even between the maple influence and the classic rye pepper notes. Seems to call out for a Manhattan."
