Templeton Distillery Releases Oloroso Sherry Cask-Finished Rye Whiskey
Templeton Distillery announced the third expression in their Cask Finish Series, Templeton Rye Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish.
The limited-edition American straight rye whiskey was originally matured for a minimum of six years in first fill American oak flame-charred barrels. The whiskey was then finished in oloroso sherry casks for an additional nine months. The 500-liter Oloroso Sherry casks were sourced from the Marco de Jerez region of Spain and once contained dry, full-bodied Oloroso sherry aged between eight and twenty years.
Previous expressions from Templeton’s Barrel Finish Series include Templeton Rye Maple Cask Finish and Templeton Rye Caribbean Rum Cask Finish.
Templeton Rye Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish is non chill-filtered and bottled at 46% ABV. It is available in limited quantities in both the USA and select international markets including the EU for $49.99 – $54.99 (750ml).
