Curiosity finally got the better of me. I was out hunting, and saw it on sale, well under $30. The lack of discussion around here should have been my warning. It tastes exactly like Old Overholt, except a little more age and proof. It has the peanut skin aftertaste (like Overholt). It's mighty hot too. Not much else. I had a dram of Dant BIB after the KC Rye, just to make sure nothing as wrong with my taste buds. The Dant tasted just fine. In the future, I'll pass Overholt, and KC Rye. Maybe it works as a mixer, but not straight for me.
