"You might read the backstory of this whiskey - the company claims it's a Prohibition-era recipe and was Al Capone's favorite - and think this is just marketing-driven hooch, but that's far from true. Templeton is a well-balanced rye that's perfect for the holidays. It has a nose of mint and pine and delivers smooth butterscotch and allspice. A true winter warmer. Mr. Capone apparently had very good taste."

Do a quick internet search of Templeton Rye and you'll quickly realize it deserves a frisbee rating. It's not terrible to drink, but approacing $40 for an 80 proof Rye, it is overpriced and its high volume sales are driven entirely by marketing. Stop buying this stuff and support distillers who make a truly quality produc and don't lie about it.

Very smooth. Faint flavors of fruit/banana.

This was recommended to me from a gentleman in the whiskey aisle over a year ago. He had come to Plainfield to get Templeton Rye because they can't keep it on the shelves in Iowa - where it's made. His words that night "...it drinks like a $100 bottle of whiskey" and after I tried it, I absolutely agree. In fact we (my brothers and our father) put it up against the very impressive Cask of Dreams by Glenfiddich and I believe it was an even draw between them despite the single malt scotch to rye whiskey comparison.
