The other evening I cracked the seal and pulled the cork on a bottle of Templeton Rye and removed exactly 1 tablespoon (to compare with some other rye whiskeys) I then put the cork back in and placed the bottle on the shelf. Approximately five hours later as I was preparing to go to bed, I heard one heck of a racket in the other room, like something had fallen off a wall or something. I went in the other room, turned on the light, and started looking for something out of place. I found the cork to my bottle of Templeton Rye lying on the floor! It had left the bottle with enough force to hit the ceiling! What the heck?! The night before last I opened the bottle and poured a small one. Last night I came home after work, and the cork was lying next to the bottle. Pretty sure the place is haunted....

There, their and they're. It's really that simple.

hummm, I would think the only way it could build up pressure is if it is still fermenting, but I have never heard of this happening, guess it could tho, look to see if there is any sediment in the bottom of the bottle

It seems I'm not the only one to experience this. Check this out. Post #12.

I did notice Templeton Rye uses a synthetic cork. I suspect that is 'part' of the equation. I wish I knew the rest.

It was the bottle protesting such small amount of usage.

Well, if you left the cork out, and then found it back in the bottle, then you have something to worry about.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

I think you may be on to something.

After conversations with others that have experienced the same thing, I have concluded that, as Templeton Rye is not bottled with a real cork but instead a synthetic cork, that perhaps the cork was still 'gassing' (not fully cured) and produced the internal pressure in the bottle to launch the cork.

There, their and they're. It's really that simple.
