    Correct Gary. I don't like those particular whiskies and would not purchase them. That's not to say that if someone handed me a glass of the stuff I would not drink it. I just would not ask for a refill.

    A whiskey I could not drink, even well-doused in a cocktail, is the current Ancient Age bourbon. It is 3 years old and very feisty in taste. The white label Heaven Hill-branded whiskey is (I find) similar. I have enormous respect for these distilleries and their many fine products, but I find those particular whiskeys very hard to get down. But that is fine, unless one can understand the full range it is hard to appreciate how good their mid-range and best really is.

    Then too clearly there are consumers who enjoy the taste of such products and that is fine, taste is personal.

    Yep, I will buy that. I had a buddy pick up a 375ml of it for me, because he noticed I was lacking it (for a reason). It's still full, and I intend to keep it that way...

    The only thing that I have found undrinkable was Black Velvet straight and I know I have had it in a cocktail which seemed fine. I have not had (that I recall) Old Crow, Ten High, Old Fitz Prime, Early Times or Dickel #12. A few ice cubes and I am sure I could get anything down if necessary...

    I'm with Gary on this one.

    Furthermore, if those were the only whiskeys left, I would NOT drink my favorites among them first, but would, instead, hold my favorites until the end, to savor the final whiskey moments with the best I had.

    I, too, am in the 'nothing-is-undrinkable' crowd:

    Jim Beam White Label: 2
    Jack Daniel's Black Label: 2
    Evan Williams Black Label: 1
    Early Times Kentucky Whisky: 2
    Old Fitzgerald Prime: 1
    Maker's Mark: 1
    Wild Turkey 101: 1
    Bulleit Bourbon: 2
    Old Grand-Dad 86 proof: 1
    George Dickel No. 12 Brand: 1
    Ten High: 2
    Buffalo Trace: 1
    Old Crow: 2

    You can translate the above to mean: 1=drinkable neat; 2=drinkable as a mixer.

    My definition of "undrinkable" is "I'll have a beer instead".
