I do like the Dickel but it doesn't wow me like Pepper. I'll have to do an A/B test of them (before my Pepper is gone).
This is exactly how I would describe Bulleit Rye. I usually make a cocktail with it, but last night decided to drink it neat (few drops of water). Loved it. Perhaps it is because I've been blowing through Willet 2 year Rye like it's my last day on earth which is also minty/herbal, I've developed an affinity for earthy rye. I've not tried Dickel Rye yet. I will probably pick up a bottle this weekend.
