    My guess is the poured out the Pappy and replaced it with Jack Daniels.

    $130 bourbon usually leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    Re: Pappy Van Winkle 20 year abnormal taste

    Maybe a lab can analyze this stuff......but seriously I am sending this back to my buddy and getting my money back- just have to wait till he goes back home again. I have realized one thing- with the money I paid for this bottle I can spend it on several other bourbons that are extremely good. If this was jack in the bottle, then it is the most expensive/disgusting jack I have ever tasted.

    Even if you aren't the one who paid for it?

    Dave, what scares me about your comment is that it is likely very accurate. Having seen Scotch faked for quite a while, I would add high-end American whiskey to the bottles I would only purchase from a store or someone trustworthy.
