    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    OGD114 is pretty bad, but in fairness, I grudgingly place it two steps ahead of Dickel #12, and am on record here as to why the Dickel was poured down my drain.

    Full disclosure: I've not tried the now (in)famous Premium Bourbon Supreme. (But I really want the goatskin jacket, so I'm potentially, reluctantly, game, I think.)

    I think this pretty much sums up the thread, but I'm going to add to it anyway...

I haven't gone out of my way to try all that many of the lowest-shelf pours, but in my opinion, care and time was taken to produce anything that is called straight bourbon, and I count none of them among the worst kinds of rotgut.
    Right on, Jim! More than one person has mentioned how they disliked Ten High, which perplexes me. I've spent alot of time on bottom shelf bourbons, and Ten High (straight, not "bourbon blend") is what I think WAS the best whiskey for the least money. Other than being a little harsh and simple, which you should expect from a cheap, young bourbon, there was nothing WRONG with it: no goofy/off flavors, and no fusel oil finish. It went great in mixes, OK in cocktails, and I even drank it on ice or neat sometimes. Even now, as a blend, it doesn't suck nearly as much as other blends, probably because it contains way more bourbon than any other blend I've tried. However, my conscience won't let me recommend anyone try the blend. My current best cheap bourbon is HH80, but I welcome your suggestions.
    On the other hand, Old Crow is the only bourbon I have only purchased once. It was rotgut, plain and simple. I'd much rather drink Ten High blend neat than Old Croak in a mixed drink!

    The Ezra Brooks I meant was a very cheap one, around 13 , so 15 Dollar I reckon. The OGD 114 is my favourite bourbon!!!

    To me a bottle is bad when I realize I paid 2-3 times more than it's worth.

    By those standards, my worst bourbon would be Black Maple Hill (paid $30, worth $10) or 2011 WLW. I don't know if I have a tainted bottle of the WLW or what, but I have poured it 4 or 5 different times and it has never been good.

    You will know if the cork is tainted SOB, if so even a high proof whisky will be undrinkable.

    Oh I see. Now it makes sense. I thought it meant the other thing, the way my dad used to use it.
