The good stuff for slick outlaws.
 
When America decided alcohol Prohibition was something they should do, Alphonse Kerkhogg of Templeton, Iowa, had to make a decision: find another job or break bad. He chose outlawry and started producing the finest Rye Whiskey around. When the newest batch was ready, he tied his white horse Babe to the pole, as a code. Everyone called Kerkhoff’s Rye "The Good Stuff," so he decided it was time to expand his business. He teamed up with Al Capone, who smuggled the booze to New York, Chicago, and San Francisco. Today, when Whiskey-making is fortunately legal, Alphonse’s grandson Keith carries on with distilling The Good Stuff, following the renegade recipe.
 
Templeton’s 6-year-old Rye Whiskey is made in Indiana using winter and spring rye grains and double distillation before they put the Spirit into American white oak barrels made in Missouri. Hot summers and cold Winters of Templeton make sure the sauce matures faster and becomes more complex and palatial. In 2010, Templeton set aside a couple of handpicked casks and bottled the Whiskey six years later. Templeton Rye is 91.5 proof and a lovely neat tipple, paying homage to all the outlaws of yesteryear.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 per cent rye. The grain gives rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. Rye was a big seller before Prohibition. After decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. George Washington distilled rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.

Jason
Jason,
Definitely a lighter experience than I like. Not very lingering finish and kinda bland. Was expecting a smoother finish and longer finish.
 
JON
JON,
Smooth and really good. This is now one of my favorites!
 
Terry
Terry,
Like ryes as Old Fashions. This was a nice representation of a solid rye with enough heat for the drinks. Wants you to come back for more.
 
Susanna
Susanna,
This was the first rye whiskey I have ever tried. It was quite good, a bit strong though.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
The 4 year bottle (80 proof) is much more appealing but be careful ordering it. I got this bottle when I ordered the 80 proof but it’s still listed as available. When this one is not.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
A fantastic rye! This is ballsier (higher proof) than their 4yr. Very good stuff! Templeton fan for life.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
I prefer the 4yr vs the 6yr. Their 10yr is amazing though
 
Ray
Ray,
Spicy at first but sweeter as we tasted more.
 
Alex
Alex,
It’s a pleasure to drink, to say the least. The butterscotch belies the ninety proof bourbon and the mild spice adds a kick that makes it worthwhile. A must try!
 
Dave
Dave,
Don’t like rye.
Aaron
Aaron,
You really should skip a review and a poor 1-star rating if you just "don't like rye" that is unfair to their reputation.

Strong true flavor with caramel.
 
Luis
Luis,
A very smooth, easy drink. Combines a caramel tone with a spicy cinnamon follow. Gentle on the tongue, as the legs are short.
 
Todd
Todd,
Solid, not extraordinary.
 
Kyle
Kyle,
Very good neat once the spice has gone the other flavors shine well.

*Shaking head* After the brandy, not a fan....
