Haven't had a ton of experience with Pepper, but this A&B store pick was recommended as a nice bottle so I grabbed one. As with all single barrels they will vary so take this review with that in mind. Nose is traditonal peppery rye. Nothing too special. First sip is definitely spicey. Has that light rye flavor in the background and a ton of peppery bite. Follow up sips bring a bit of brown sugar on the tips. The finish is really the nicest part of this dram. After that overpowering pepper burns off there is a lingering fresh baked cinnamon muffin note that closes an otherwise middle of the pack pour. Overall this isn't a drain pour, but I wouldn't be beating down doors to find another. To me it's just another basic entry in the Rye category. Suggest you pass this one for something more interesting on the shelf.
