The non-drowsy ashwagandha you've been looking for
I'm pleased with the KSM-66 formulation; it is definitely more stimulating (or at least not sleep-inducing) than other forms of ashwagandha. I have no problem taking it first thing in the morning. Not sure it does much for cognition, though it doesn't hurt.
Some people say KSM-66 can make certain users more aggressive; I have not found that to be true—at least not in my case.
I would definitely buy KSM-66 again, although right after I got my first bottle, Nootropics Depot launched the new Shoden variety. That looks intriguing and is the version I'll try next. KSM-66 will remain a reliable fallback if the Shoden doesn't work as well.
As always with nootropics and everything else in life, your mileage may vary. You may do better on a different ashwagandha (such as Sensoril) or no ashwagandha at all. Nootropics Depot offers an ashwagandha sampler if you're looking to sample your options before you commit to a full bottle.
