Top reviews for James E. Pepper 1776 Barrel Proof Rye Whiskey:

— Love it ! Smooth and strong.

— I can find it locally for about $39, but regardless it's an AWESOME buy for that price. Makes a wonderful Old Fashioned and sips great neat or cut with a few drops of water. Great rye.

— One of my favorite ryes and the best one you’ll find for this price point. The rye spice dominate the nose with the clove & cinnamon following through from nose to finish. The minty & herbal bit on the finish sits with you a moment & you can almost forget you’re drinking a 116 proof...

Robinson
Robinson,
Wow! This is one intense rye! I was afraid to drink it because of the high ABV content but fear not! It’s strong and intense but a great experience nonetheless! The nose to me is very creamy like a cream soda. It definitely has a bite to it but also carries through with a warm, soft, velvety finish. Enjoy!!!

A bottle that resembles the true meaning of “it punches you in the mouth” intense notes of citrus and mint with a unique spice that’s not overpowering

James,
can't go wrong with barrel proof - sip it with one cube or alone - it offers sweet dream cinnamon on your tongue with a hearty warmth

Brendan,
Spicy with good heat. Great mouthfeel and surprisingly easy to sip on despite the higher proof. Works great in cocktails as well. A great buy!

Carl,
It's $41.99 now. Weird how it can fluctuate so much! Gotta add stuff to the wishlist and check back on it, I guess.

Joshua,
yeah they source from various places but maybe my review helped them realize a mistake or need to drop some seller.i will have to stock up before my membership runs out at the $41 price
Aaron
Aaron,
$46 today, 8/24/2020 but even that is too high. Check out Buffalo Trace's whiskeys like Blantons and EH Taylor- the markup on those is completely absurd.
Edward
Edward,
The sazerac rye is priced just right to me. I would never pay the ridiculous prices they have set for the allocated bourbons here. They are crazy high, but I bet people buy it for that much.
