    1) thank you for your service.
    2) take Joe's advice and steer clear of RY and its (slightly) older brother Rebel Reserve. There are plenty of choices-even wheaters-in that price range that blow the doors off those. Weller SR, Antique 107 and Weller 12 to name three.

    Rebel Yell is one of those brands that used to be good.

    Yes it was but even to contemplate it now is depressing.

    Devils Cut didn't do anything for me either. Don't get me wrong I finished bottle, but I am not running out for a second one.

    That is some pricey stuff to be pouring down the drain. I know price doesn't always equal quality but could you give a little more detail about what was wrong with it? Might save someone an expensive mistake.

    Don't think that I'm alone on this. Do a search, even on this thread. "Horrendous stuff," "rotgut," "pickle juice."

    I was gifted this bottle last year. Really gave it a chance. Ended up finishing about 3/4 of the bottle before dumping the rest last night.

    Black Gold. I picked up a 1.75 in Hazard a couple years ago.

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    Previously in this thread I listed Heaven Hill gold label BiB as the worst bourbon I have ever tried... I need to amend this after last night.

    A friend brought a bottle of TX Whiskey (blended whiskey) to our Super Bowl party. This stuff was terrible. The nose smelled like soggy s'mores covered in hairspray and the palate and finish followed suit with similar flavors. Strange how stores here in TX can barely keep this stuff on the shelves...
