    It's okay, but personally I prefer Knob Creek.

    There is a new (year and a half) whiskey distillery by the town I live in here in Wyoming. It is simply called Wyoming Whiskey and it is made out of all Wyoming products.

    Knob Creek is straight bourbon...not remotely the same thing as TR.

    Point well taken. So should I be comparing it to Crown Royal?

    Nope....Templeton Rye is as the name states, a Rye whiskey. Not many Rye whiskey's are extermely popular out there. I know Jim Beam makes a Rye (in a green bottle).

    I really enjoy Templeton Rye, but it is hard to compare as it isn't as popular as bourbon and there aren't as many choices.

    I went to WhiskeyFest Chicago on Friday night. 80 vendors from around the world. Sampled about 40 or so, some pretty good ones, a couple that almost made me hurl.

    As am I, but TR is a nice departure here and there. Extremely smooth....just TR and ice cubes for me.

    Whiskey is like beer. Many varieties, similar characteristics. It's all got the same similar core group of ingredients: corn, wheat, barley, malt and in the case of Templeton Rye a lot of rye.

    Scotch Whisky (Dahwhinnie) has to come from Scotland, and comes in two varieties. A blended malt which consists of several grains above, and a single malt which is made of one ingredient (barley) listed above. It has to come from Scotland and it has to age in oak barrels. The Scottish also use peat to fire their stills, which many believe imparts a smokier character.

    Irish Wisky, (Bushmills) which is the "original" whisky uses a similar process to scotch using similar grains and processes. It has to come actually come from Ireland. They have blended malts and single malts just like the Scots do. It's distilled three times opposed to two, and they do not use peat to fire their stills.

    Bourbon Whisky (like Knob Creek, Woodford Reserve) comes from the areas immediately surrounding Louisville, Kentucky. It's primarily a corn based whiskey. In order to be called Bourbon it has to originate from this area of Kentucky, and be aged in charred oak barrels that are only used once.

    Tennessee Whisky (Jack, Georgie D) are based on the same ingredients but use a "sour mash" which entails using a little bit of an older mash of grains to kick start a new batch. It's also filtered through charcoal and MUST come from a specific region (Lincoln County) in Tennessee to be marketed as Tennessee whisky.

    Templeton is a rye whiskey meaning that it uses primarily rye as the ingredient of it's mash. I'm not as well versed on their production methods, but I know it's good.

    Canadian Whisky (Crown Royal) like Templeton uses a higher percentage of rye in the mash. It has to come from Canada to be called Canadian Whisky. It's also aged in oak casks, but indifference to Bourbon they can be re-used.

    Dude, that is the kind of stuff you drink when your boss dies. I hate bourbon, but from what I have had of Blanton's, it is incredible.
