Templeton Barrel Strength Straight Rye Whiskey 2018 is an exceptional addition to the Templeton family that is matured and aged to perfection in flame charred American oak barrels. Natural, non-chill filtered and bottled at 57.2% alcohol by volume, this limited release is bursting with rye spice and black pepper giving way to summer fruits, butterscotch, and oak. Complex notes of orchard fruits deliver a delicate warmth with a lingering finish, dovetailing beautifully with a velvety character that balances its considerable strength. Templeton Barrel Strength Rye Whiskey is both complex and intriguing and represents the expression in its purest form. Each year the team carefully chooses the specific casks used for the limited release barrel strength edition. This exquisite whiskey is a fitting tribute and salutes to the town of Templeton - a small town with a strong spirit. Meant to be enjoyed in its purest form, you can drink Barrel Strength on the rocks, neat or with a splash of water to help bring out even more flavor. Enjoy!
