Opened the Pepper Rye I bought (NAS). They should call this one Denny Green Rye because . . . it was what I thought it was . . . http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SWmQbk5h86w . . . Stuff is LDI, tastes LDI, that being said, for 26 and a 100 proof, not bad, very minty with a hint of pickle. Made a nice Manhatten, wasn't bad straight up. In my opinion if your short Willet 4 yr or don't want to drop the extra 10, this is pretty much an easy substitute minus 10 to 15 proof points.
