Notes: Templeton Rye features a unique interplay of smooth and sweet flavors contrasting with hotter and more abrasive sensations on the palate. The taste of rye dominates, and is a very savory and distinct grain tang to it. However, other tastes blend in with the rye; a slightly spicy feeling flows along the tongue, and one can notice fruity and woody notes in abundance as well.
