    After 7 agonizingly long years in the United States of Texas (what we do for love!) I left exceedingly bemused over the fact that the folks who codified the notion of "all hat and no cattle" often fail to apply the filter accurately.

    Novice that I am, still happy to proclaim, 'I've yet to meet a bad bourbon.'

    I wouldn't call it bad. Simple, yes, and a bit corn-forward, but not bad. I don't drink it neat much because there are more interesting bourbons to drink neat, but it does fine in a mix.

    Re: What is on your list of bad bourbon?

    most anything under 100 proof and everything under 90 proof.

    im a newbie to bourbons but have already discovered bookers is my favorite....

    i didnt like OGD 114 when I first tried it, but it has either started to grow on me, or it got a bit better after air exposure

    Ive had limited exposure to ryes, and have to just say....indifferent

    Re: What is on your list of bad bourbon?

    I always go back in my memory as to what I've poured down the drain:

    Dusty JTS Brown 86 - cardboard skunk taste
    Rock Town Baby Bourbon

    Everything else I've been able to either mix with or at least figure out something to do with it!

    I don't mind standard Woodford Reserve, but I had to try the Sonoma-Cutrer at the Houston meetup this weekend. Probably the worst I've had.

    I wish I was at liberty to say.

    Actually I guess there's nothing wrong with saying that I had a 1980's JW Dant "Olde Bourbon" 80pr that was really, really bad.

    Garrison just released a 136pr "Cowboy Bourbon" to the market, in 375ml. It's pretty damn pricey, as Dan admits, so idk if I'll get to try it, I hope he sends me a sample. I have heard from others that Garrison straight out of the barrel is some of the best bourbon they've ever had.

    Re: What is on your list of bad bourbon?

    I have a long list of 'craft' bourbons that are unpalatable, but I hate to shame little guys who are really trying. Having said that I think the Whistle Pig 111 is off the mark (although that's a rye).

    I think you covered it nicely, looks like I am not needed around here.
    The sad part is the "to young", there are so so many falling into this catagory.
