Templeton Rye 4yo 40% 750ml


Estimated delivery between June 25 and June 27.

In 2006, Templeton released their 4-year-old whiskey. This sourced product was based on a nearly century-old recipe developed by Alphonse Kerkhoff in Templeton, Iowa. The Templeton 4-year-old Rye Whiskey was distilled at MGP in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. Following its first release, the company quickly experienced its fair share of controversy after they were subject of a class-action lawsuit over alleged deceptive marketing practices.


The nose has a candy sweetness. Winter-mint, white sugar, dill, and alcohol notes were present.


The first sip has a thin viscosity and caused a slight tingle on the tip of the tongue. Rye spices and a faint dill note were present. The second sip presented notes of honey, vanilla, wintergreen gum, and dill. The third sip had a candy sweetness and caramel. These were followed by a faint rose note.


The finish was short and presented with notes of oak, vanilla, and cinnamon.

In closing

The Templeton 4-year-old Rye Whiskey is surprisingly refreshing. The candy sweet nose coupled with the unique wintergreen note make this spirt unique and interesting on the palate. This Rye Whiskey would be perfect for anyone who wants to dabble outside of traditional bourbon. Those who enjoy the heat of traditional rye spices will be disappointed. Overall, this spirit would make a good addition to any collection.
