    YES, YES, YES!!!!

    From my perspective, this isn't a case about dollars to proof, but dollars to drinking enjoyment.

    Hands down, the Willett Rye's in the 3-5+yr range some of, if not the best rye on the market for that age bracket. Wonderful rye flavor, perfect neat, holds up with water wonderfully, and great in a cocktail. That is something that most cannot do. They may do one or two at a stretch, but not the trifecta.

    And the price is great for what you get, IMHO.

    I just hope that they have some more stashed away aging gracefully, I'd love to have some as they get older.

    I haven't been able to pull the trigger on Bulleit Rye 'cause the price seems too high, but as soon as I saw the Willett, BANG! Had to have it. I think I made a mistake, tho. I only got one (along with 2 RittBIB). Both were my 1st sightings of these expressions.
    At the very least the Willet is higher proof, more than 20% higher so in terms of proof/$ it's about the same value
