Favorite whole peppercorns?

I like to toss some in my soups. I'm reaching the bottom of an ancient bottle of Spice Island that is still potent. Any recommendations?

    Costco's Kirkland brand Tellicherry are just fine, at least at our house.

          Second Penzey's Tellicherry. I buy the largish bags and go through them FAST!

            Also love the Penzey's tellicherry and am fortunate that their store is right around the corner. The 8 oz. bag is only $6.99. I go through them quickly, too!

              Another vote for Penzey's extra bold.

                Guess I'm going to have to try the extra bold next time.
