    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    Like I said in another thread, if you want to just about guarantee success of a whiskey product (and almost any other product) in Texas make sure you slap Texas on it as much as possible. In many cases it's just that simple. It's just an observation. That's all.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Couldn't agree more Joe. Texas nostalgia is a powerful marketing tool.

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    Inspired by this thread, I did a head to head review on my blog of Cleveland Bourbon and Bourbon Supreme.

    A new low in SB reviews, which in itself is remarkable.

    I'm surprised you lived to post again.

    Or is this someone posting for Josh, carrying out his last dying wish?

    I saw Josh on Saturday. He was a bit pasty, but very much alive.

    Local stores can't keep the Cleveland swill on the shelves. There's no accounting for taste, apparently.

    I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?

    I had to guzzle Four Roses products all weekend to counteract what I drank for that review.

    Maybe I'll bring a vatting of the two to the gazebo.

    That's actually depressing.

    But perhaps not terribly surprising. Can ascribe it to something we can perhaps call the home town or "Texas" effect. Local product that shouts the name across the bottle, whether it is appropriate or not, combined with a buying public with limited discrimination in taste that is probably mostly drinking for effect mixed with Coca Cola or some other favorite mixer allows for booming local sales I presume.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Mixer and effect sum it up for me. It just sounds like something that would give you a worse headache than an ex wife.
