    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    I tried everything I could think of to improve a bottle of Willett Pot Still. Neat, water, ice, vatted with something good... the WPS just ruined everything that it touched. Bitter, sour and bland.

    The new 'inspired by' Hirsch. Some of the worst stuff to ever pass my lips. Also, basil hayden's can't stand that stuff.

    I once cringed over a bottle of Sunny Brook but my reluctance was overcome by the fact it was all the whisky we had.

    Rebel Yell, terrible taste, remembered fondly. We were coming off the line for the last time after a 9-month deployment to the Gulf of Tonkin and the Captain, against all U.S.naval regulations, had distributed two bottles of "champagne" to each ready room for officers only parties. Two flight surgeons contributed RY to fortify it an a punch bowl. I've never had it since but maybe I should.

    I'd pass Jim. The stuff from back in the 70's is actually considered pretty decent, especially when compared to todays bottling. The current Rebel Yell is not at all like it was back then.

    Thanks, Joe, I'll take your advice. Life is too short to waste time on inferior stuff when there is so much better. Actually, back then (late '60s) most bourbon struck me as harsh, but I've long since seen the light.

    Back then a lot of them were, or at least seemed so, it was more than price that separated the top from bottom shelf.
