Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Perfect for classic cocktails, this golden-amber rye invites with lots of vanilla on the nose and palate, plus mouthwatering notes of pear, cinnamon and black pepper.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Pale orange color. First inhalations pick up toasted pine nuts, cigarette tobacco, candied orange, toasted marshmallow, treacle. Taste impressions include oaky vanilla, coffee bean, sourdough toast, thyme, black pepper. Finish is long, gently sweet, even honeyed, pleasing. (Mar 2015)

Over the course of its storied history, Templeton Rye became Al Capone’s whiskey of choice, quickly finding its way to the center of his bootlegging empire. Hundreds of kegs per month were supplied to Capone’s gang who in turn filled the demand of speakeasies throughout Chicago, New York and as far west as San Francisco.
