    First is Ten High, then Devils Cut.

    Only bottle I have ended up pouring down the drain after 3 pours.

    Awful stuff. No wonder it is still on the shelf.

    Slate Bourbon. http://danmurphys.com.au/product/DM_.../slate-bourbon

    An Australian only release that can actually ruin a good glass of coke... I've heard it makes a good degreaser though

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    I started a thread a couple of years ago titled "Down The Drain". Pretty close to the same meaning. So, here's what I posted back then. I believe these two pretty much qualify as the worst bourbons I've ever tasted.



    I just wondered how many of you have had a bottle of bourbon, (or other spirit) that you ended up pouring down the drain.

    Yesterday, I was taking an inventory of my collection, and was cleaning my cabinet a little, and rearranging things. I came across my bottle of Old Crow Reserve. I bought this when it first came out. It tasted "different" the first time I tried it. I've since gone back to it three or four times, and it hadn't gotten any better. Yesterday, I gave it one more try. No dice. I couldn't take it anymore. Down the drain it went. This is only the second time I've ever done that. The other bottle I ended up pouring down the drain, was a bottle of Gran Legacy. A "generic" bourbon sold by CVS pharmacies.

    So here are two to start the parade.

    Old Crow Reserve
    Gran Legacy

    I can hardly wait to see what else may have ended up as Draino! Joe

    I've only dumped two bourbons, as I find I can usually mix them with ginger ale and bitters to make a decent drink. The first was an older Ten High, 200 ml, which was just mediocre, and didn't mix well with others. The other was a tainted (I hope) JTS Brown 86. It went fine if I was smoking my pipe or cigar, but alone was just funky weird bad, cardboard and dirt.

    Old Crow is what I've started using for my aging trials. I feel its only shortcoming is age, but it's quite the major shortcoming.
