    If you need more than an ice cube or touch of water, just to all out and fill up with ice and add coke too.

    Practically ice, but I light the lightness of 4RSmB for Mint Juleps.

    Re: Bourbons that really SHINE with ice and water

    I take almost everything neat - but I drink Booker's (which I love) as a triple pour with two rocks. In warmer weather I take my non-premium bourbons with 2-3 whiskey stones that I keep in the freezer.

    If I paid for the bottle I can drink it any way I like.

    Bourbons that really SHINE with ice and water

    GTS would be one. I always drink it on the rocks and usually let it melt some as well.

    Cheers

    I think most 100+ proof bourbons hold up well to be served on the rocks. My favorites include VOB 100 proof, WT 101, Weller 107

    I have noticed print ads from the late 1950s emphasize their new 86 proof bottlings are "lighter and smoother" and usually display a glass with ice as well.

    OGD 114 4cl two cubes, and Baker's, just 5-10 drops of still water, opens up the whole thing.
