    How do you prefer your EC12?

    Typically, I taste a bourbon neat in a Glencairn, then add a drop of water, then in a rocks glass with ice. Over the years, I have concluded that I prefer the EC12 on the rocks. I'm not quite sure why, but I suspect that ice helps mask the flaws while enhancing its more pleasant attributes. What say you?
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    I prefer all my whisk(e)y neat. I don't dislike it with a splash of water or a bit of ice, but I prefer it neat 99.9% of the time.

    A small cube is nice, but neat will do when I'm out of ice....

    I drink it neat, but I drink most everything neat. I'll try it with a cube tonight, out of curiosity.

    Re: How do you prefer your EC12?

    It's below 100 proof, so neat. If it was above 100 proof I of course prefer neat. The super aged bourbons that are super proof I prefer neat of course and the watered down bourbons around the 80 proof mark of course deserve to be drank.............neat. Other than that I mix the fuck out of rum, vodka, gin (what's that) and tequilla.

    Stop mixing your tequila and drink it neat. Come on man!

    I had my EC12 with a cube. For me, it killed off the vanilla flavor which is my favorite part of EC12 and made it into a much more nondescript pour. I'll take this one neat for sure.

    I prefer my EC12 to be distilled in Bardstown.

    I first started drinking bourbon at the end of the time when this was likely to have come from Bardstown and sure enjoyed the bottles I got then. Wish I'd bunkered some.

    The off the shelf bottle I have has been poured down the drain on a couple occasions...I just can't get into it. The EC 12 (15) that the GBS did is drank neat.
