I find something a bit medicinal in the JB rye. Much prefer the WT. Old Overholt is much softer, but quite good as a staple. If you can find the Rittenhouse BIB, go for it! We love the older ryes like Sazerac, VW, Black Maple Hill, and Classic Cask, but Pikesville and Rittenhouse are good if you can find them.
