    Re: Black Bourbon Cleveland Whiskey

    I wondered about that too. What's it take to get a 62?

    Re: Black Bourbon Cleveland Whiskey

    Even with it being a very bad bourbon, the stuff is still flying off the shelves here in north east Ohio. I would like to add that apparently I need to start sampling various products in my garage so that I can start to pick up flavors such as caulking glue and silicone.

    Re: Black Bourbon Cleveland Whiskey

    I received a sample of this but I have not had the guts to try it yet. Sounds like I'll need to keep a skunk handy or something else to lick to get the taste of the whiskey out of my mouth.

    I worry that non-bourbon drinkers will think that's what bourbon tastes like and never touch bourbon again. On the other hand, screw 'em. They paid their money and took their chance.

    Honestly, I looked back at my notes on Wyoming and scored it one higher.

    I suppose anywhere in the 60's is fine. < 70

    What? You mean you guys didn't eat this stuff too when you were kids????

    Lol, I guess it's more on the nose than the palate but they work together. Don't our noses pick up the majority of our taste anyway? Hence why holding your nose while eating something awful works.....which is exactly what you'll want to do with this one.

    Let us know what you think Scott when you're brave enough to give it a go. Each sip got progressively worse for me.

    Re: Black Bourbon Cleveland Whiskey

    I live in Cleveland- so like a lot of locals I gave this a try. I'll share my thoughts and those of several friends.

    Me - 1st taste "Not as bad as I expected"
    Me - tonite -"I get two flavors - solvent and ashes."

    Rick (Single malt drinker) "It has a cork - it must be good"
    Vern (Seagrams Honey in diet cream soda drinker) "I like it - doesn't taste strong like your other bourbons"
    Jose (Beer brewer) "Pretty much a one note song, but a nice bottle for olive oil "
    Ken (Bourbon and Scotch drinker) "It's a lot better than Columbus Bourbon"
    Mike (drinks anything) "Way better than Columbus Bourbon"

    No way I'll drop another $30+ on this - I'll be in Frankfort next week - I'll be bringing back some real bourbons

    Black Bourbon Cleveland Whiskey

    Getting caught up on WhiskyCast and just listened to episode 417. Mark reviewed this one and didn't have very nice things to say. His final score was a 60 (and he said that was being generous)....looks like we were on the same page.

    So it's better than CBUS bourbon, thats a ringing endorsement.
