    Templeton Rye

    Imagine my surprise when I spotted five bottles on the shelf of my local Quik Trip store.
    Is this becoming more prevalent, or is it no longer as popular as it was?

    Anyway, I thought that if any of you are still having a problem finding it, try your QuikTrip in Des Moines.

    Thank you.

    Same place I found mine. Apparently they provide more during the Christmas season.

    Weekly Templeton Rye Thread. We need a Templeton Rye on the Forum menu right next to ISU football.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    They are becoming more prevalent, as supply is catching up with demand.

    Ahhhhh, I see. Thank you for the clarification Cyber.

    Well, I didn't mean to beat a dead horse, what with the allusions to a weekly Templeton Rye thread!

    I just thought I'd pass along a bit of information. I have seen the small batch bottles bring over 100.00 in several charity auctions this fall and early winter and wanted to add my two cents worth. I had never tried it before and it certainly is smooth just over ice. I may have to buy another bottle or two for next year when things are a bit leaner.

    This won't be an official T-Rye thread until somebody mentions that they just gt a new bottle of the REAL Templeton Rye.

    Well actually... no. I didn't. And before you ask, I didn't stay at a holiday inn express last night either.

    They're still making the small batch bottles? Or are these from years past? If they are making them still, where can I get some?

    I purchased bottle #213 from barrel # 575, batch #4, bottled on October 24th 2011 at my local Quik Trip tonight at 6:05.

    Enjoy.

    A store manager told me they got to up their order for the holidays but they have been getting twice that.

    Re: Templeton Rye

    I came close to buying a bottle this past weekend, but I decided to enjoy my hand-crafted TR first. I only crack it open for special occasions, and since my sis-in-law just got engaged, this weekend will be one of those times.

    Thank you for the update. (Maybe I WON'T be buying extra bottles to sell next fall.
    It sounds as though next year it will be a bit more available.)
