Here's a game we can all play. Let's collectively develop a list of top ten rejected bourbon names. So more people can play, limit yourself to one entry. Here's mine:

Number 10: Buffalo Truss

Chuck,
Does this list include brand names that were used but probably should never have been? If so there was a pre-prohibition brand from Daviess county I would nominate to your list.

Number 8: Yellow Creek

If you don't want actual brands from the past then I will have to go with a story from my United Distillers days. Gary and Mardee Regan were questioning Ed Foote about making a bourbon just the way he would like to do so. His reply was that he already did that with Old Fitzgerald and besides, "Old Foote" was not a very good name for a bourbon, so alternatively:

Number 8: Old Foote

The only criteria is that they should be funny, and both of those are cracking me up.

My students are reading C.S. Lewis' "The Screwtape Letters" for summer reading and that inspired my choice of
"Wormwood Reserve".

Chuck,
Since we were limited to one, I will let you be the judge as to which one makes your list.

# 1 ------- "Dicken's Cider"

If anyone wants to hear a funny commercial for "Dicken's Cider" it is attached. After you download it you have to right click on it and rename it so it end's with .wav instead of .txt Its Very funny.

Chuck,
Another post elsewhere reminded me of this series of posts. It also reminded me that I saw a Civil War reference to a distiller on Yellow Creek a couple of months ago.

Changing the Presidential reference from Abe Lincoln to a more recent President yields, "Knob Polish".

Mrs Daniels was a bit miffed to find out that she had been left off the name http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif
