    Re: What is the worst scotch you ever tasted?

    Oh and I've been to Islay before too, and Jura, and Mull, and Iona, and Skye, and Grantown on Spey, etc. etc. etc. and have a section of my garage dedicated to Kentucky.

    I'll admit that Johnny Walker Red is not good, but there are much, MUCH worse blended Scotches out there. Like I said there's J & B, Cutty Sark, and a host of bottom shelfers like Inver House and The Old Smuggler. JW Red tastes like Lagavulin compared to those.

    Loch Dhu. I bought a bottle of this around 1997 when I was first getting into single malts from blends. It probably created my love of bourbon because after that bottle, it was a long time before I bought another bottle of SM.

    They are all about the same to me. The bottom two shelves at any LS basically all taste equally bad, or just bland.

    My entry into the world of scotch was one called Scoresby. It's the most basic well scotch you can get, I believe. It's swill. I know that now, but it tasted good to me 25 years ago.

    Interesting how all that changes with exposure to really good foods and drinks over time.

    I had a pour of Clan MacGregor a few years ago. Completely appalling splash of lighter fluid that was.

    Dewar's 12 was pretty awful, imho.

    What is the worst scotch you ever tasted?

    I think most of the "standard" blends - J&B, Dewars, Cutty - are all totally acceptable. JW Red is not pleasant for me, but Black was one of my gateway drinks.

    My apologies, Tom, but Ardbeg Alligator was like sucking on a burnt tire to me. But I appreciate the opportunity to try it!
