    What, did I mispeak or misunderstand what he was getting at?

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    I can't recall any bourbon I've had that was worse than the current Benchmark. I try to find the good in just about anything I drink, but after giving it more than enough consideration I can say without doubt that it had no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

    No. Makes perfect sense to me.

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    I've tried a lot of bourbons in my couple years in this hobby, but I have to say that the worst bourbon I have tried was an Old Charter "The Classic 90" distilled in Frankfort. One pour from that bottle and it has sat untouched since. Too much earth/dirt flavor with young wood taste.

    I was under the assumption that most of, if not all but one of, the high rye mashbill bourbons are blended into their other products. It still doesn't cover up the highly acidic note I get from their bourbons though.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Nah, you can get them all with a little effort. Either through the 1B LEs or Private Selections at various stores.

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    For me the worst was the bottle of Old Grand Dad 86 proof that sits in my bar. It tasted like hand washing soap with alcohol. I nearly threw up. I tried mixing it in Coke and nearly spit that out.

    Although...nearly a year later the bottle has lost that soapy flavor and is tolerable now. Go fig.

    Couldn't agree more. Regardless of the value everyone talks about with Johnny Drum I just can't get over the tannic taste to it. By far my least favorite bourbon
