    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    I think the majority would like to support their local companies and that's why I tried Chattanooga 1816 three (3) times!

    But jeez there is no way getting around it, that stuff is pour rot gut.

    I've never had BAD bourbon. Luckily I can avoid all the garbage thanks to the internet, but my two least favorite were Jim Beam White and Ancient Age. I've had TONS of awful white dog, flavored whiskey, blended American, etc...

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    I guess they don't call it bourbon, but I poured a little bit of Jacob's Ghost from a mini. Did not care for it at all. Tried another taste and confirmed. I wasn't expecting to like it but it reminded me of bourbon-flavored, cheap tequila. Like if you drank a shot of Beam White and immediately filled the glass with Cuervo. I suppose it might make for an interesting mixer but I don't do cocktails enough to bother with it.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    I guess none of you are old enough to remember Old Crab Orchard? Took me many years to try bourbon again after tht crap whyile in college. I soon dicovered Old Overholt rye and Laird's Applejack at about the same price, then oved to scotch whre I stayed exclusively for years.
    There's no such thing as bad whiskey, there's only over priced whiskey.

    JB white still tops my list, no interest in seeking out something to displace it either.

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    As much as I hate to admit not liking something from Texas, I recently wasted $75 on a bottle of Garrison Brothers.
    Tried to like it on three separate occasions, straight, with Coke Zero, with Lemonade, Ginger Ale.... nothing worked.
    Just an awful, corn-filled, cheap, young whiskey taste.
    My last resort may be a 99 to 1 ratio of Pappy/Garrison Bros.
