So a couple years ago I tried EC 12. It was by far the worst I ever tasted. Like burnt leather.
But recently I tried the latest batch. Wow! What a difference. I would say it could easily be in the top 5 I ever had. So the lesson leaned from all this is to try at least 2 before you give it the ultimate thumbs down.
Good advise Bill, one shouldn't be too hasty in dismissing these things.
Kentucky Gentleman. I bought a bottle to make bourbon slushes, (I have a great recipe if anyone wants it), and made the mistake of trying some before mixing. It's truly, the worst "bourbon" that I've ever had.
"A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals and you know it."
It's the nature of a blend like Kentucky Gentleman to be rough because the GNS that makes up most of the blend is almost pure alcohol straight off the still.
Some asshole to be unnamed put ghost peppers in OGD. I had To rinse my mouth out for 20 min and get a new glass. Very funny.

That good-looking asshole also clearly labeled that bottle of (86 proof) Old Granddad as being infused with ghost peppers! Caveat potator!

Anybody who would adulterate Old Grand Dad should be . . . well . . . chastised.
