    Bourbon Supreme

    I bought these two bottles
    Can anybody tell me how old these are.
    One has a white label and the other one is creamy/beige. Text on both bottles is the same.

    Re: Bourbon Supreme

    According to Dave Z's post here: http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...ead.php?t=7539 ADC got out of the Whiskey business in 1980 so it can't be later than that. Judging by an ad for sale on ebay, they are probably from the 1970s.

    The facility there is going to be reopened to make ethenol for fuel, and possibly for drinking too according to this article: http://www.ethanolmarket.com/PressReleaseMGPI112309

    Well, there IS a line of thought that that's pretty much what they made when they were bottling it as Bourbon Supreme.

    Re: Bourbon Supreme

    Well, i opened one of them.
    Big disappointment. Almost no taste, comes close to the referred ethanol.
    The proof is still there but no flavour.
    I think i blend it with a JB.

    Pretty bottle, but no need to open them.

    "Charcoal Distilled" or distilled charcoal?

    Re: Bourbon Supreme

    Bourbon Supreme is possibly the worst bourbon even bottled. Even the most reviled bourbons and blends available on the shelves currently are much, much better. I wouldn't even recommend blending with Jim Beam, as it would just make the Beam even less drinkable than it currently is.

    Re: Bourbon Supreme

    Tn Bourbon already warned for this but i was just too curious.
    I have an Old Quaker from that same era(?) which i like very much.
    What you suggest i'll do with it, part from flushing through the sink.

    I suggest saving it for unsuspecting guests...talking up what a great whiskey era it hails from, what a unique flavor profile it represents, how rare it its to find such a distinctive whiskey anymore....then wait for their reaction.
