    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    I haven't really had a BOURBON I didn't like. Sure, some were better than others, but I didn't find any to be downright offensive.

    Now there was a blended whiskey called Corby's-- I think it was a Barton product-- that re-defined the word "rot-gut" for me. Like Jason Vorhees, even drowning it (in cola, in this particular case) couldn't kill the nastiness.

    It's weird how the same distilleries can make products that are flat-out awesome (Very Old Barton and Ridgemont Reserve come to mind), can also make something that grotesque.

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    As people have recently speculated regarding Heaven Hill wheaters and the low quality of the OF line, there may be a correlation between the bad stuff and the good stuff from the same distillery.

    I think it was the bottom shelf Johnny Drum that answers the thread's question for me.

    Just speculating. Don't let me put words in your mouth, ethang.

    *But no, four roses is all high rye. Well f--- me, man; I've got nothing.
    You would be correct sir. I am a rye drinker primarily, and my bourbons need to have rye in them. Don't get me wrong- Weller, Van Winkle, and Fitz are all fine crafted bourbons, but they are not to my personal liking. I like the grain flavor of the Four Roses Single Barrel, but the other acidic flavors over power it for me. It's a shame because I think if they made their high rye mashbill with other yeasts in their arsenal, they could come up with something fantastic. To give you an idea of my palate- VW rye, basically all 100pf and above WT products, OGD, KC rye, EC 12 and 18, Old Heaven Hill BIB, 1792, and, strangely- Mellow Corn.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    They (4R) do make the high rye masbill with all of the yeasts, you'll just need to find a retailer, online or brick and mortar, that has them as private selections. The Party Souce comes to mind obv, but I don't know what the legality of shipping to PA is.

    If FC is the worst bourbon you have ever had, you are one exceptionally lucky fella.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.
