    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    Ever? I'm sure I had some very bad bourbons 40 years or so ago, but I don't specifically recall what they were. And these days, I listen to what others say is awful and avoid it.

    I didn't know that TH was the recipe for VOB. Maybe I'll have to try it again.
    Thank you for the information.

    Can't say. I've had many that I wouldn't buy another bottle of, but I can't say I've tried anything so horrible it couldn't be drunk ....... one way or another. I'd have to say that FR Yellow Label rates up there as one of my most "unfavorites".

    I've had some Bourbon Supremes that pretty much sucked.

    I've got a 1975 quart of Bourbon Supreme but have been afraid to try it. The bottle looks nice and it will kill the mystique if it is nasty. I'll pop it one day I guess.

    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

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    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.
