"meh" is fair, especially if your idea of great rye is the more flavor the better. It's milder, arguably better-balanced, and I find it goes down pretty easily. I like it in all of its iterations. Which are: Old Overholt, Jim Beam Rye, Knob Creek Rye, (ri)1. I probably like the Knob Rye best, then (ri)1.

Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.
Over packaged, over hyped, overpriced.
Just had some Knob Creek Rye a few minutes ago. Never had the Ri1. Sounds too much like high school science stuff....
If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.
Apparently Beam has determined there is a marketing niche for these lighter styles, after all, Canadian whiskys sell very well here.
There is enormous difference in price of this whiskey in the Columbia area. I can find it from $22 to $50. All in all, it doesn't sell well here. In one store I frequent, I mentioned that I had heard it had been discontinued and the next week it was 50% off and still hasn't sold. I tried it at the Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ festival. Wasn't impressed so I haven't bought it at even $22.
