    Yea, Black Maple Hill was a huge disappointment, as was Noah's Mill and Rowan's Creek. For what the price tag is, I will not be buying any more of them.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    I've heard of people just spitting it out in the sink.

    I'd say my most disappointing was Woodford Reserve's Seasoned Oak Finish. It tasted like smoked shoe leather. I also don't like Blanton's.
    As for worst, probably Old Crow or something (whatever I used to drink in college when I didn't know bourbon from scotch)

    Old Grandad 114 is petty terrible stuff, its like they ran standard beam through a sweat sock.

    Second only to that would be Willy Nelson's own Old Whiskey River. Few buddies and I thought it'd be a good idea to have a real whiskey tasting instead of usual beer and jack fun. I remember hearing "this has got to be great, Willy seems like a man that would really know his whiskey", and immediately thinking about the poor decision making that the red headed stranger is known for. I recall char, salt, and a bundle of other horrible flavors. Very young in my whiskey drinking at the time and I'd probably think different now, but the rememberance of it still makes my stomach turn a bit.

    I tried an old log cabin dusty from the 60s that tasted like gasoline and burning tires.

    For shame!!! I know this post is old, but FC is damn fine stuff.

    I'd have to go with Beam Black label. I've enjoyed everything else I've tried to varying degrees, even Benchmark.

    Old Bardstown. My bottle was absolutely terrible and holds the distinction of being the only bottle I've ever dumped down the drain in my life.

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    This is quite an entertaining thread. Blanton's, Dickel 12, Noah's Mill are some of the worst you've had?! Were you drinking them with or without a silver spoon in your mouth? I kid. Perfect example that the best bourbon out there is the one that tastes best to you, and why when new folks ask for recommendations, we tell them to just try everything.

    Back on topic, the worst I've had was Yahara Bay, an indie from Madison, WI. In a close second place was Willett Pot Still. Tasted like nutty, salty, buttery popcorn gone bad.
