Aged in the heartland of the U.S., Iowa's Templeton Rye Whiskey is a premium spirit known for its silky smooth flavors. This has made it a popular choice for many whiskey drinkers.

These barrels, which have head bungs, have been freshly emptied and used once to age whiskey for 4.5 years. Now, you can fill them and barrel-age beer, cider, wine or other beverages. 

Some of the tasting notes you can pull from the barrels include dry, grassy and natural spice flavors, plus hints of caramel, butterscotch, toffee and allspice.

Note: These were originally head bung (top fill) barrels. We have drilled a new bung hole into the side of each barrel for horizontal storage on traditional barrel racks. Watch our video to learn more about this process.

If you want head bung-only barrels, please order from THIS LISTING.
