Templeton Rye from Iowa.
It was in the early 1920s that many defiant residents of a small town in Iowa became outlaws — producing a high-caliber and much sought-after whiskey known as Templeton Rye. Thanks to its smooth finish, the American rye whiskey earned the nickname of The Good Stuff and quickly brought notoriety to the tiny town of Templeton with the population of only 350 people.
I discovered it at a BBQ contest in Mason City Iowa. One of the teams offered up a toast before the contest began.
