Name a great reputation bourbon that you didn't like

Unread postby Birdo » Tue Jul 07, 2015 9:03 am

I've bought a few that just didn't work out even though they come with great reputations.

My List:
BUFFAL TRACE and EAGLE RARE. Odd because I really like the Weller line from the same people
RUSSELS RESERVE: My bottle went weird after the first couple of pours. I like their WT101 better for less cash.
FOUR ROSES SMALL BATCH: A four year old opinion that deserves a re-visit, Love FR single barrel.
GEORGE DICKEL 12: Tasted like multi-vitamins. Glad its gone from my shelf.
DEVIL CUT: Gimmick and a headache in a bottle. Beam has better offerings than this dud.
OLD GRAND DAD BIB: Another old opinion that deserves a re-visit. I mighta just had a bad bottle.

what do we have to do to get qqyfbaqxlz booted from the site?

on topic....Ive tried three expressions of 4R products and none of them appealed to me. Also, I enjoy WT101 and WTRB, but not the RR 6 or 10 year bottles Ive tried. Also dont care for WR or OF. But I do likes me some Dickel, but much prefer the 9 year 103 proofer to the #12.

My gripe with Woodford was the price for what you get. Its reasonably smooth with some spice, but my goodness, its at least $10 buck too expensive. OF and OF Sig are both pedestrian mid-shelfers.

That's why this site and may others fail, when the moderators and/or owners refuse to take care of it and fix the problems.

Obviously, Mike Veach doesn't care enough to get rid of these kind of problems.

Mike Veach as well as the other moderators have real jobs as well as other interests that prevent them from constantly watching this site. I am sure they could use help, why not volunteer your services?

Mike is busy, as are the other admin/mods. Fortunately I'm retired and have time to help sort the chaff from the wheat.

Pappy 15. The last pour of this I had went over the railing at the Gazebo.
