You got some nerve callin' yourself "Gentleman"
I ain't one for bourbon whiskey. I prefer Tennessee whiskey, specifically George Dickel. Not only do the folks at the Dickel distillery turn out one über-smooth spirit, they use the traditional Scottish spelling of "whisky" on their bottles. The Scots-Irish half of me likes that a great deal.
That said, I had a couple of buds over tonight to watch us some college football. One of my buds brought an unopened bottle of Kentucky Gentleman bourbon, which'd been left at his house after a recent party.
None of us had ever had Kentucky Gentleman before. Upon cracking the seal, I poured about two ounces into three highball glasses. Then it was bottoms up. Five seconds later we all came to the collective conclusion that KG is the worst bourbon whiskey to ever grace God's green earth.
Wanna know what it's like to drink whiskey that tastes like it's been laced with chalk? Then round up $7.99 and get yourself a 750 ML bottle of Kentucky Gentleman at your local liquor store. You won't be glad you did.
