    Re: I was given a bottle of Templeton Rye by Penn State fans staying next to me in MN

    I think it is just to establish some provenance claim to the product. "Our rye" goes into the mash (even if a tiny %). Like small vintners who use grapes from all over but add some locally grown ones.

    Like a small child watching grandma make a pie and later saying they helped.

    Guys,
    I understand that they pick the barrels and knew that from the beginning. I simply think it tasted better in the beginning. Had the two different bottles side by side, not the same. Didn't mean to upset anyone. Just my thought.

    I understand, not upset at all. Variation in product from year to year is an issue with most whiskeys so great effort is taken to keep to a certain brand profile.
    Some years are less successful than others.

    Oh, good heavens no, I don't get upset about anything, even young female family members who seem to think E on the gas gauge means Eureka or something.
