    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    Just dumped my bottle of Old Charter 8 80pf. That stuff was more flat and nasty than Eagle Rare- which I didn't think was possible! I am proud to say that my whiskey cabinet is finally Four Roses AND Buffalo Trace free- that is, unless you consider Van Winkle Rye or 1792 a Buffalo Trace product....

    So now it's back to happy days again and lots of Heaven Hill, Beam, Barton, MGP/LDI and best of all- Wild Turkey!
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    I have bottle of Colonel Lee from a few years ago that is totally vile heinous stuff. Just thinking about it turns my stomach.

    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

    We can agree there. Old Charter 8 y/o is terrible. Benchmark-esque.

    Well, how can it not be McCormick's, the $7 well bourbon of the finest dive bars? Tastes like kerosene and sadness.

    town branch gets my vote...the only reason I haven't dumped it is that the bottle looks so nice.

    Re: Worst Bourbon you ever tried ?

    I think the "worst" bourbon I've ever had was Ten High; however this speaks more to the goodness of bourbon in general than the badness of Ten High. It was just young and low-proof, but it was a perfectly good whiskey and honestly a good value. I haven't gone out of my way to try all that many of the lowest-shelf pours, but in my opinion, care and time was taken to produce anything that is called straight bourbon, and I count none of them among the worst kinds of rotgut.

    Great, that old dusty of Old Charter 8 year from 1995 is looking to be rather nasty before it's ever opened.

    I live about five miles from the McCormick distillery although I don't think they have distilled there in a long time. The bourbon they sell is some of the poorest I have tasted and I agree with your comments.

    Let that one open up a day or so and go back to it. I hated it at first, then it really grew on me.

    Old Charter from that era was a very different beast. I don't care for it, but the ones I've had were butterscotch bombs.
