    Ha ha.

    I can think of a few really bad bottles that I have had. Once there was a really nasty handle of ND OT 80 that just would not go away. Sam Houston NAS is on the list followed by green label Johnny Drum. Last would be some undrinkable SW Old Fitz Prime 80 proof from the late 80s. This is my short list of bottles that I will never finish.

    I don't think Heaven Hill is very proud of that one.

    While not a bourbon, I tried the Dry Fly Port Finished Wheat Whiskey and damn near threw that crap out. I don't even know if I can cook with it. It starts out okay but then it just turns into a gawd-awful mess. The huckleberry port gives it a truly nasty flavor that just continues on and on. plbgh!

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    I don't live in an area where hunting for dusties is likely to bear fruit, so my list is mostly bourbons that were probably either bad batches or just not what I wanted that night:

    James Pepper. No story, it's just not very good bourbon
    Black Maple Hill NAS that was actually pretty good until 2/3 gone . . . turned gritty on me. Might have been poorly filtered?
    Russell's Reserve 10. Was hyped up by a friend. Underwhelming.
    Finally:
    Hancock's President's Reserve. Forced down my throat at Total Wine by a manager who was trying to sell me on that instead of Elijah Craig 12. Tasted like Listerine and Garbage Water

    Other Whiskey related abominations that I would be more likely to feed to my toilet than drink again:
    Any of the new bourbon based liqueurs. Tennessee Honey is a great example of that. And by great I mean terrible.
    Southern Comfort. Gross.

    The worst whiskey I've ever had:
    Connemara Single Malt. Proof that just because you can make a peated whiskey doesn't necessarily mean that it's a good idea. Tasted like oily plastic. Super disappointing given my love of Islay and Island peated whiskies.

    Otherwise, I try to buy stuff that has generally proven drinkable. If not, I have a great BBQ marinade recipe...


    1/3 bourbon

    1/3 soy sauce

    1/4 olive oil with

    fresh ground ginger, garlics and cayenne pepper

    Soak meats for a day, fishes for 4 hrs

    Guaranteed to improve and dispose of the most mediocre of whiskey

    Cheers

    Worst I have was Old Crow. I tasted like that candy corn kids eat with alcohol.

    I will have to try your recipe! I have never dumped a whiskey. I use it to spray my ribs
    Apple Juice, bourbon, some soy sauce and butter. Cook ribs low and slow.

    Old Heaven Hill was my least favorite pour. Very medicinal

    which proof point?

    I kinda like HH old style bourbon, but it is a fairly run-of-the-mill bourbon

    Charred Oak Bourbon - 100 prf was pretty bad. It's a diabolical drain pour and thankfully it was only a sample I tasted.

    It was the BiB. Just didn't agree with my palate
