    Well, since we have an Irish Whiskey thread and a Vodka thread, why not the "good stuff?"

    Worst whiskey I ever had is a neck and neck race between two well-known Thai whiskeys:

    Sang Thip

    and the more well-known spirit,

    Mekhong

    Tried them both and hated them both. No amount of mixer helped. Both of these are good for only one thing. Molotov Cocktails.

    timb99 I got use to drinking Leaping Deer after a few months and a little smoke. Many many years ago. Anyone like Georgia Moon, not the homemade. Yuch!

    My father inlaw always wanted to give me " Old Charter" Never tried it but he said it was good and cheap. Southern Comfort is the worst stuff I ever put in my mouth and I like all whiskey just some better than others

    I agree with timb99 one time when I was in Thailand, I ran out of Crown and was down town and started drinking Mekong, the next day it hurt to piss so bad I thought I caught the clap


    But that that happened a couple of weeks later, just kidding

    One man's rotgut is another man's sipping whiskey.

    I like my bourbon with a little character and am not fond of Makers Mark or any of the Tennessee whiskeys. However, some bourbons to me are too strong.

    I would not call it rotgut but I once bought a 5th of Colonel Lee bonded 100 proof that was 4 years old in Virginia in the 1960's. It had a lot of "bite" and you could not overpower the taste with Coke or any other soft drink.

    Georgia Moon also was rough and at 180 proof was fit only for spiking the punch.

    I once won a 12 bottle case of Early Times in a raffle and after a few sips gave it away.

    For my money, the Beam whiskeys are good and I really like Brown-Foreman's Old Forester.

    Stitzel-Weller used to make Old Fitzgerald, Wellers, Rebel Yell and Cabin Still. Julian P. Van Winkle was the master distiller. Of the various brands,
    Cabin Still was an entry level inexpensive 90 proof 4 year old but it was made from the same formula as the more expensive whiskeys. It just was not aged as long. I was raised on Cabin Still and really liked the taste. However, the Stitzel-Weller distillery has changed hands and some of the brands have been sold off or discontinued. I believe that the Buffalo Trace distillery now makes some of the brands.

    When you are really tired and are not up to the challenge of a good bourbon, a smooth Canadian on the rocks makes a good nightcap.

    If you really want to tie one one on and get a world class hangover, try Imperial blended whiskey and Carling Black Label beer.

    Wild Turkey 101 was part of my nature studies minor in college. Bit more than I can handle these days. Pendelton Canadian is more my speed now.

    I vote with Wolfram on the Pendleton. If funds are short toward the end of the month, try MacNaughton. Best $9 bottle of whisky out there. As for rot gut, definitely Ten High & don't forget the old Safeway house brand, Cold Brook. John

    Go to Walmart and look for the bottle on the bottom shelf labeled "Whiskey". They also have "vodka", "rum", and even "scotch". None with a name anyone would recognize. All slightly worse than Corby's, Ten High, etc.
