Templeton Rye review

If you had too much Irish whiskey last night and need a bit of “hair of the dog” go see if you local liquor store has a bottle of Templeton Rye whiskey and sip on some while reading our review.

Templeton Rye refers to rye whiskey originally made in Templeton, Iowa during the prohibition era as a way for farmers in the Carroll County area to supplement their income. Made of 95 percent rye and amber in color, it was considered to be of particularly high quality and was popular in Chicago, Omaha, and Kansas City speakeasies. It was said to be the Al Capone’s drink of choice. There is a lot of history behind the prohibition era whiskey, if you want to know more check out the Templeton Rye website for info and recipes. In the recent past there was a bit of controversy about the origination of the whiskey… Iowa or Indiana. In the end, who cares, they make a damn fine sipping whiskey and that is all Ansel and Opie needs.

Nose: Dry, grassy, natural spice

Taste: Hint of caramel, butterscotch, toffee and allspice.
