I'm not much of a RYE Guy... But I do like the Michters Rye and the Angels Envy take on it ( Angels is finished in USED Rum Barrels.
I tried the Willet take... By way of comparison and with limited exposure to RYE I offer my opinion.
Willet 2 year takes raw / grassy / immature.
I perceive much of what I like about toasted rye bread -- the spice and some of the raw flavor of a not to be tamed grain.
However, in the Willet Rye it seems the mash never recieved any heat.
I'm planning to check this Rye in the years to come. Hoping in 5 years this will be a tasty alternative to Michters.
