The options, it seems, are "Whole Special Extra Bold," "Whole Tellicherry Indian" and "Whole Malabar Indian." Thanks, PicklePals! ;o)

Personally I go with the tellicherry but I usually have about five kinds of peppercorns hanging around. While you are at Penzey's you might also want to pick up some Szechuan peppercorns which have a very interesting flavor.
I like the Malabar pepper for steeping in saucy stews as well as ground for seasoning while cooking and in a grinder at the table. It has a classic pepper flavor but with good depth and a backnote of gentle heat. Good all purpose black pepper.

I keep Tellicherry and Sichuan peppercorns on hand, but I purchase from Vann's.
I'm a Tellicherry man, myself. Started when we lived in India, but not all pepper grinders are happy with those extra-large peppercorns...
I love Ecuadoran organic black peppercorns, but they are hotter than most. Not sure if Penzeys carries them, I order them from the Spice House:
Yes to Penzy's. I keep on hand white pepper, black/Tellicherry and Szechuan peppercorns.
I've tried all three varieties of whole black peppercorns offered by Penzey's. The Extra Bold Indian smell great and do have a great flavor but I do not see that much difference between those and the Tellicherry. Save yourself a few bucks and go with the Tellicherry.
I don't know about Penzeys but Fresh black pepper is easy to grind and has a superior flavor & aroma both Tellicherry Black Peppercorns and Malabar Black Peppercorns for us almost same http://www.bulkpeppercorns...
