    Top Ten Rejected Bourbon Names

    Here's a game we can all play. Let's collectively develop a list of top ten rejected bourbon names. So more people can play, limit yourself to one entry. Here's mine:

    Number 10: Buffalo Truss

    --Chuck Cowdery

    Re: Top Ten Rejected Bourbon Names

    Chuck,
    Does this list include brand names that were used but probably should never have been? If so there was a pre-prohibition brand from Daviess county I would nominate to your list.

    Number 8: Yellow Creek

    If you don't want actual brands from the past then I will have to go with a story from my United Distillers days. Gary and Mardee Regan were questioning Ed Foote about making a bourbon just the way he would like to do so. His reply was that he already did that with Old Fitzgerald and besides, "Old Foote" was not a very good name for a bourbon, so alternatively:

    Number 8: Old Foote

    The only criteria is that they should be funny, and both of those are cracking me up.

    I've got a scan of a label called "Old Panther Piss".

    Re: Top Ten Rejected Bourbon Names

    My students are reading C.S. Lewis' "The Screwtape Letters" for summer reading and that inspired my choice of
    "Wormwood Reserve".

    Chuck,
    Since we were limited to one, I will let you be the judge as to which one makes your list.
