I met a fellow Scotch drinker the other day, and he goes on to tell me how he used to drink Lagavulin, Bunnahabhain, and other premium single malts, but now he almost exclusively drinks one blend: Robert Burns.
Well, I have been looking for that mythical concoction, the cheap blend that tastes great, so I figured, "why not? It's just $20."
Yeacht!! Gack! Thhhbbbbttt!!! That was me trying to purge my mouth after I tasted this "whisky".
Now to figure out what to do with a bottle of the stuff.
A few days later I am sitting at home, and think perhaps I found a use for 'ol Burnsy. I had already had one glass of Laga 16, then another of Ardbeg Uigeadail, and thought switching to Burnsy after those two monsters might be the perfect trick.
No dice. It was still terrible. I poured it down the drain.
What do you do with terrible whisky purchases? Which bottles do you wish you never tried?
