    Templeton Rye...How much is too much to pay for a bottle?

    Have been on a number of waiting lists and HyVee, HyVee drug and a few stores out of Ames. Last time I got a couple bottles the going rate was about $43. I found a bottle in Ames yesterday for $69.99, plus tax. Guy says he has people traveling up from DsM to get a bottle. What do you think? Too much or not?

    35 tops, from a TR fan. Too many other options at that price point (or below).

    Too much... You can get other Rye Whiskey that taste just as good for less. I don't know if people are fooled by it being an Iowa product or what? It's good not great, and not the true original recipe.

    Anything over face value, if you think its that good... pay it. But next year think ahead and there will be plenty of places to find it a few weeks out of the year.

    Re: Templeton Rye...How much is too much to pay for a bottle?

    I picked up my first ever bottle (I'm out of state) a couple of weeks ago for $38.

    It's good stuff, but I probably won't be buying it much anymore.

    I used to drink the heck out of it. At the time it was only $17 a bottle. Very smooth very good.

    Re: Templeton Rye...How much is too much to pay for a bottle?

    Around $36, maybe $40 tops. If you are being rational. If you love the stuff, and really don't care about watching where your beverage dollar goes, I would think $70 should be the upper limit.

    It is good stuff, and I do enjoy it, but if I find it I give it as a gift to out of state friends.

    I'll pay up to 50 for the stuff with duct taped bottle cap in a schnapps bottle.

    Where do you live? We have had it setting on the shelf at Fareway and not to many interested. I think it is around $36.00. If you were getting the real stuff it would be worth that.

    I wouldn't pay more than $40, and I'm a fan.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
