    It was good! I like Overholt quite a bit for the price and mixability.

    I picked up a bottle of the single barrel reserve bourbon a few weeks back and it's pretty good. Are these recent releases any hint of things to come?

    Just in the sense that Beam seems committed to product innovation across all of its brands, much more so than they were a few years ago.

    The label references "smoothness", so you know its good.

    Ya...I'll second that. I guess compared to JB Rye , anything could be considered smooth...even kiwi shoe polish, 160 proof.

    My guess would be late spring.

    Don't fret too much about things like age statements, or lack thereof, on prototype packaging. With Knob bourbon age stated at 9 years, and Beam being the producer most comitted to age statements, I suspect we will see an age statement on KC rye and it will be 6 to 9 years.

    I hope you're right. It looks like it's on the Alabama price list (p. 22) http://www.abc.alabama.gov/PDFs/ABCBoardPrices.pdf at $39.99, and they don't have an age statement listed. How accurate is the ABCB?

    At forty bucks and NAS it sounds like (ri)1 in a shorter bottle. At least it's listed at 100 proof.
