    What is the WORST whiskey blend you've ever had?

    I'm kind of bored and I know this is kind of productive but I figured it would be entertaining nonetheless. I never drink blends unless I'm in a bar and it's the only thing they have to mix with that's not 12$.

    What is the worst blend you've ever tried- American or Canadian?

    Ill go first- top 3 are:
    1. Canadian LTD
    2. Philadelphia
    3. Barton

    I can't recall. They were all so forgettable.

    BTW, wrong sub-forum.

    Well put, but the blends i mentioned were far from forgettable (actually they were downright horrendous- i try to forget them). I'm sure I'm one of the only guys on here who tries blends on any sort of basis (probably 2 or 3 times a year- when the cheapest thing other than a blend is over 10$)

    A bottle of 4 Roses Blend would be at top of my list. Considering how good everything they now sell, how did ever manage to make something this bad?

    All of their good stuff was being sent overseas. Why they decided to sell Americans that blended swill....I have no idea. I'm just glad that they have corrected that problem.

    I haven't dabbled in the blended category, so my experience with a bad blended begins and ends with Crown Royal. Stuff is AWFUL!

    I guess I'll have to go with Ian, Crown Royal to me is bland and bad.

    Can't say I've ever tried a blended American whiskey. Doesn't sound like I should start.

    ten high blended. Terrible ain't the word. I tried it on accident because ten high was my everyday bourbon and the switched it to a blend in New York but if you do not look close you will not know. I knew upon first taste something was wrong. Tastes like cardboard. There was a blened ezra brooks in the mid 90's that was actually pretty good.

    I have a bottle of Barton QT Premium. Can't imagine what the "Premium" refers to. It will never be used past the one drink that has come out of it.

    I thought barton qt was a light whiskey. Is it now a blend?
