    I would pick Woodford. Personally, KC makes me sick....just a bad sweet flavor.

    Woodford it is then. Kinda harsh but not awful. Not sure if I expected better or worse tho tbh.

    The rye notes in KC are almost too much. The grain flavor is very prevalent in that last bottle I sampled. WR on the other hand, albeit not a favorite around here, has a much more well integrated persona IMO

    Another vote for Woodford, given the options.

    If I were at a bar, I would go Knob Creek. I have a weakness for (exactly) 100 proof bourbon.

    I've been disappointed by Woodford too many times.

    I like them both and drink both regularly. I would probably lean toward KC because I like the sweet, caramel taste profile. I think WR tastes a lot more woody... which I definitely like, at times.

    I would go with KC, it was pretty good when I initially tasted it, but I have not sampled it recently.

    Flip a coin. Both have their good, and not so good points. How's that for diplomacy? Cheers! Joe
