Color Light Gold
Nose The nose has a candy sweetness. Winter-mint, white sugar, dill, and alcohol notes were present.
Palate 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.
Finish 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 spirit 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.
