    Re: What is on your list of bad bourbon?

    i didnt think to check the year, and id imagine you could leave a HH BIB uncorked for the month and it would still taste better than this. I'm gonna chalk it up to a fluke or a bad barrel (since I like so many other things from HH), but still, I'm not gonna take a $25 chance on another one of these

    Whisky that's gone bad is usually corked and the merchant will replace or refund.

    Re: What is on your list of bad bourbon?

    The worst bourbon that I have ever had was Ten High. However, I should caveat that by saying that 1.) it was served at a hotel as a complimentary drink and 2.) and this is something that I have never seen before, it was dispensed through a dispenser like soda! The bartender apologized when I ordered it and before I even tasted it. I drank it neat with a few cubes of ice. I couldn't finish it. My guess is that it must have been watered down. I am not sure that I have ever ran across a bourbon that was bottled that I couldn't drink.

    Have to wonder what was run through that dispenser previously.

    apparantly they liked it as there were only 2 shots left. then again, their go-to drink is Early Times anyway....

    if we can return empty bottles we "didnt like", that would be fun!

    Nothing wrong with that, Early Times is a mixer and performs that job admirably.

    for mixers, if you like mixers, yeah. i tend to look over anything under 100 proof too, so that may have something to do with it. we had this same bottle in a blind tasting the night it was opened a month ago, come to think of it, and I dont remember it standing out as a bad bourbon like it did yesterday. again, i'll give it the benefit of the doubt and count it a fluke or what-not

    Howdy, Jim Beam Devil's Cut; it's borderline nasty. And I like JB black label and find JB white to be adequate. Go figure.

    Re: What is on your list of bad bourbon?

    Once again, this guy is going to be in the minority here, but I also understand that.

    -Wheated bourbon. Yuck. This stuff is just plain foul to me. I've dumped out bottles of Weller as I couldn't even choke it down! I think this pretty much just comes down to an issue of "It's not my style." I can appreciate it as a defined style of bourbon, but I am more than pleased to let the bottles on the shelf for those that appreciate it.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.
