I had a bottle of Very Old Heaven Hill 8 year, 86 proof (a bottom shelfer ubiquitous in Minnesota, and maybe one other market) that was pretty bad. Way too drying and tannic, and tasted like rejected Beam juice (hell, maybe it was, after the fire...) Even at $10 a liter it was bad.
But, I just bought another bottle of it and it's really, really good. Think of the better EC12s (the ones that aren't hot and overwoody) and you've got it. I'm glad I gave it another chance.
I guess "give 'em the bird" isn't just a marketing slogan, it's a brand management strategy, too.
Pappy 15 the WORST youve ever had!?>?? You havent tried much, have you??
The worst bourbon I've had was a bad bottle of Eagle Rare 10. I normally enjoy this whiskey, but this bottle tasted like there was dirt in it.
Jim Beam white. The smell . . . the taste . . . the thought . . . just makes me want to puke. I have tried to drink this multiple times, and I no longer will. The only bourbon that I have ever experienced this with.
Easy...Old Bardstown that tasted like the shit from the horse pictured on the label. I wouldn't even subject my drain to it.

Jim Beam White Label. It's the bourbon that turned me off bourbon when I was about 18. I'm just glad I found my way to great bourbon!
This week I went back and got another bottle of Ten High.
Seeing it was one of the first few Bourbon I tried, thinking since I have tried many different Bourbons since then, and maybe it
was my inexperience with Bourbon. Still not crazy about it.
i know its not bourbon but the crown royal black was so nasty i poured it out. And i dont pour anything out
