    passed on this the other day, store had a large stocked display of it. Having a hard time springing for it when I think it will not live up to the current Willett 4-5yrs ryes n the market, and a a much better price!

    Beam rye and the Willet green wax ryes are very different styles. It would be like comparing Four Roses Single Barrel to Elmer T. Lee. Yes both are bourbons, but they taste nothing alike.
