    When the temp approaches 90 degrees, I tend to pop in a single cube, ala our friend One Cube Only. Other than that, it's straight all the way.

    Re: Question from a Stagg \'virgin\'

    I am not gonna lie and claim to have my bourbon neat all the time. I think I split 50/50 going neat in a snifter and enough bourbon to comfortably float two medium sized ice cubes in an Old Fashioned glass. Often anymore, it seems to depend almost soley on what the bourbon I choose to drink is, very few get both treatments.

    BTW George T Stagg is one of those few bourbons I do drink either with or without ice.

    It's weird, but Stagg is one bourbon I can't seem to want to put ice in anymore. I used to put in a cube on occassion, but now I just like the mind blowing powers of straight Stagg. But yes, cl is right, in the summer an occassional cube is a nice thing... Especially with the weather we've been having here lately!

    Re: Question from a Stagg \'virgin\'

    Prior to the conversion of Leestown to Buffalo Trace, that distillery made only one bourbon formula. Obviously, anything they made 15 years ago is going to be from that formula. So at least in theory, something like Ancient Ancient Age (10 years old) would be in the ballpark. With the Stagg, however, you have 5 additional years, plus the selection process by which they found barrels that were truly outstanding. On paper, it's the same whiskey, but in reality it's very different. I can't think of anything from any other maker that has a similar profile. Actually, the Evan Williams Single Barrel 1992 that I tasted direct from the barrel (at similar proof to the Stagg) is the closest thing I can think of.

    Sometimes i have a cold glass of water to keep cool while sipping bourbon... It won't dilute the bourbon unless you want it to...
