I bought a bottle of JB Rye last week, myself. I'd finished my first bottle of rye, the Wild Turkey Rye, and really enjoyed it. Time to try another. Unfortunately, I can't stand the JB Rye.
The primary nose I get from this is black licorice. Since I don't like black licorice, this is not a good thing. I've tried it a few times since opening it, and always get the same thing.
I also don't care much for cauliflower, so maybe I'm unconsciously picking up some of what r0b was talking about.
I'm glad I had the WT Rye first, otherwise I might have been wary of ryes all together.
