    Tempelton Rye

    is available in Colorado now. Woot! Just acquired my first bottle. Gonna make some terrible decisions this weekend because of it.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: Tempelton Rye

    Pendeltons is terrible. I would rather drink diesel fool. Tempelton is best when the assumption that bad decisions are going to be made, and to just let them happen.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: Tempelton Rye

    Specific brand of port? And why is it named typewriter? Do you have that skill after drinking one?

    Re: Tempelton Rye

    Some buddies and I did a blind taste testing with whiskey awhile back. We had Maker's Mark, Gentlemen Jack, Jim Beam Rye, Cedar Ridge, and Templeton Rye. I think there was one more that I cant remember. Anyhow, one friend had the "bartending" duties. He had rocks glasses that were numbered and he poured some of each whiskey in each glass. Only he knew which number corresponded to which whiskey. We had to sample each and rank them. I remember when it was my turn, one of them was distinctly my favorite, and one was distinctly my least favorite, and then the middle of the pack was a bit tougher to rate. After each whiskey was revealed, my favorite was the Templeton. And actually, it won with my other 2 friends who participated in the sampling.
    So, in our little experiment, we showed that there really is more to Templeton Rye than just the "branding" and back story. Sometimes that stuff can trick the mind.

    Oh yeah, my least favorite was the Beam Rye.
