    Re: What is on your list of bad bourbon?

    This sounds like the makings of a "What Do You Desperately Want To Get Rid Of?" thread.

    Are you talking about the Early Times 354?

    Other than I think they're a bit overpriced I'm fine with either Early Times or 354.

    Re: What is on your list of bad bourbon?

    We found some old Rebel Yell amongst my grandmothers collection of most of the products made from several distillery's she worked at. I must say.. that stuff was terrible, you could taste the fusels and just a shot left a bad taste for a while. After about six people agreed.. we used it to clean up some antiques that was in bad shape, made great cleaner.

    Was that bottle/decanter of Rebel Yell sealed with a cork?

    No, regular Early Times almost-bourbon. I've had it before and as I recall it was OK, but the current bottle I have (glass with a plastic screw top) has an odd, plastic-y taste to it. My dad agrees, so I doubt I'm crazy. Or maybe my dad and I are both crazy?

    Of course that ET was being sampled by palates seasoned with good old Ten High.

    Historically, McCormick, but that was many years ago. More recently Old Crow, Rebel Yell, and Yellowstone. WRT Old Crow, I found the new 'reserve' barely drinkable but the 36-mo not drinkable at all.

    Re: What is on your list of bad bourbon?

    I'm convinced those that say they've never met a bad bourbon have not tried the current Old Crow. It is the one and only entry on my bad bourbon list. It doesn't even taste like bourbon.

    Old Crow Reserve, on the other hand, surprised me knowing how bad the standard label Old Crow is. Old Crow Reserve is a nice little bottom shelfer and a decent value if you like to mix your Beam with coke but want to save a couple $$$. Its not knocking any mid-shelfers off my shopping list, but decent all the same.
