    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    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.

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    Copying my response from a similar thread over at BourbonEnthusiast:

    --Jim Beam Black was a huge disappointment, as was Basil Haydn's.
    --You guys are going to kill me for this but- I can't stand the Weller line. It's just downright gross to me. Then again, I've never had a wheater I like except Cabin Still!
    --Echo Spring was pretty boring, but it was only about $8 for the bottle.
    --ALL Four Roses products- too much acid flavor and not enough leather and grain flavor.
    --Eagle Rare 10- Not bad, but it seems to have a really weird flavor profile.
    --Jack Daniel's- who the hell drinks this stuff?!?! Tastes like bananananas (Spelling??).
    --Every Scotch or Irish whiskey I've ever had- The barley and peat make them taste like stomach acid to me. I can't even swallow the stuff without a gag reflex. Seriously.
    --AND THE #1 WORST EVER- WILD TURKEY 81 RYE. LORD HAVE MERCY ON US. BRING BACK THE 101 RYE!!
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Knocking the Weller line AND Four Roses in one post? I'm surprised that the SB.com gods didn't smite you before you'd finished typing.

    Nice.

    If he hates most wheaters - and all Scotches because "the barley" contributes to a "stomach acid" taste - then maybe he likes ryes and high rye bourbons?

    Just speculating. Don't let me put words in your mouth, ethang.

    *But no, four roses is all high rye. Well f--- me, man; I've got nothing.

    Hudson Baby Bourbon...stung twice as hard because I was at a special tasting event for the whole Hudson line and I had been looking forward to it SO MUCH.

    A couple of years ago it was the Fighting Cock that I had a lot of trouble killing the bottle it just seemed to keep on pouring. That I think is the worst bottle I had yet, Still may have to try it again though I am a glutton for punishment

    BTEC Oats is hands down the worst bourbon I've ever had.

    I don't like the Weller line. Come to think of it, the only BT products I really like are Baby Saz and ETL.
    JD is disappoints me too, but is not labelled as bourbon.
