Introducing the new finish Templeton Rye Oloroso Sherry Cask


San diego, california – Templeton Distillery, an award-winning, state-of-the-art distillery producing high-quality rye whiskey, announces the third expression of its Cask Finish series, Templeton Rye Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish.

Templeton’s limited edition barrel finish series offers a unique annual twist to what rye can be. An outlet for innovation, this limited edition American upright rye whiskey was originally matured to perfection for a minimum of six years in first fill flame charred American oak barrels. The whiskey was then expertly finished in the finest oloroso sherry casks for an additional nine months. The 500-liter Sherry Oloroso barrels were meticulously sourced from the Marco de Jerez region of Spain and once contained dry, full-bodied Oloroso sherry between eight and twenty years old. The extra maturing time spent in the oloroso sherry casks accentuates the rye spice while adding subtle and alluring flavors, tropical fruit tones and nutty aromas.

“Our Cask Finish series is committed to creating innovative offerings with compelling taste profiles and our Templeton Rye Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish finish delivers that in abundance,” said Tim Grimes, Senior Brand Ambassador. “We are delighted to share this limited edition with the world which showcases the influence of Oloroso Sherry on American Rye whiskey with an unmissable flavor profile.”

Tasting Notes:

  • Aroma: Crème caramel, candied orange peels, figs and raisins mingle with delicate notes of hazelnut oloroso sherry
  • Palace: Rich and oily palate with tropical fruits and exotic spices dramatically complemented by milk chocolate and nuts
  • To finish: Long, creamy and beautifully balanced with the ancient influence of sherry working in harmony with black pepper and sumptuous warmth

Previous expressions of Templeton’s Barrel Finish series include Templeton Rye Maple Cask Finish and Templeton Rye Caribbean Rum Cask Finish. Following the success of these limited editions, the distillery knew that quality was key with Templeton Rye Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish and wanted to ensure that their third maturation would result in the sherry notes and exotic flavors envisioned in the whiskey. Delighted with the results achieved so far, Templeton Distillery looks forward to expanding its Cask Finish series in the future.

Templeton Rye Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish is unfiltered and bottled at 46% ABV. It is available in limited quantities in the US and some international markets, including the EU for $ 49.99 – $ 54.99 (750ml).

Templeton Distillery has earned a reputation as a leader in high quality rye whiskey. It’s something they like to think the people of Templeton, Iowa, during Prohibition – themselves making whiskey and hiding it in basements – would be very proud of. Today their rye is made a little differently (100 years and legal production capabilities will change the way you do things). With a bill of 95% rye / 5% malted barley puree, Templeton Rye is aged in new American oak barrels.

Their state-of-the-art distillery opened in 2018 with plans to bring aspects of distillation and aging in-house. This innovative production facility not only creates the opportunity to create more jobs and local agriculture, but also to improve the quality control of all their whiskeys, whether it is the flagship 6 year old rye or innovative products such as the Cask Finish series. All of the Templeton Rye products currently available for sale have been distilled and aged in Indiana, with blending and bottling taking place at the Templeton Distillery. Templeton Rye has three main expressions: 4-year-old and 6-year-old, which received a gold medal and a double gold medal respectively at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, as well as the new 10-year reserve, which also received the double gold medal.
