    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    Man, I want to taste that! On a side note, my wife really wants me to buy one for the funny-shaped bottle.

    However, its a blended whiskey. Not 100% barreled whiskey

    Ten High is a blend in some parts of the Country and a straight in other areas. The straight version is essentially a 4 year old 80 proof Barton.

    This was pretty funny.

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    First let me say I'm an inveterate mixer. I have a decent palate, and frequently taste a couple different things and think they would both be improved by combining them. So I never pour out whiskey. If it's bad, I try blending it into drinkability. Usually works.

    Bulleit, Old Bardstown 101 and B&E didn't impress me at all, but are OK for vatting. Definitely not good for the $$.

    But the only whiskey I ever gave away was a recent bottle of Rebel Yell. It was weak and bland and just yuck, and I gave it to my son-in-law.

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    Mamba, a guy came by my office, sat a bottle of grade whisky on my desk and said, "Happy birthday, I brought you a bottle of 'good enough' whisky".

    Okay, I'll bite, what's 'good enough' whisky?

    "Well, if it were any better I'd kept it and if it was any worse you wouldn't drink it".

    LOL! I can't help it if my son-in-law is a lightweight! He adds water and ice to 80 proof liquor.
