    I thought Jeffersons small batch did well with an ice cube.

    Re: Bourbons that really SHINE with ice and water

    I prefer rye whiskey or high rye bourbon over ice, so the aforementioned 4R, RittBIB, OGD all work well. Obviously the higher the proof the better, but even 90 pf rye stands up to ice/dilution better than standard 12-18% rye bourbons. The spiciness keeps the flavors sharp, even when diluted.

    Having a OGD BIB on the rocks with a splash of water right now. I think it is outstanding. It will happen again.

    I'll echo some of the 4R suggestions specifically the yellow label. Especially if I'm out or at a party WT101 or EW black label on the rocks are solid too.

    I have come to the conclusion that either neat, on the rocks, in an old fashioned, or in a manhatten, all of the BIB's old up pretty well.

    This reminds me that HH White is pretty good on rocks.

    Re: Bourbons that really SHINE with ice and water

    I prefer Ten High (straight) as a 2-3oz pour on one ice cube. Taken neat, it's a bit harsh because it's young, even though it's only 80 proof. One ice cube seems to do an excellent job of smoothing out the sharp edges on this one.

    Sadly, Ten High straight is no longer available in MI, unless you go dusty hunting.

    Re: Bourbons that really SHINE with ice and water

    I'm planning to try some 4R smB on the rocks this afternoon.

    I will report back with my findings.

    My very favorite bourbon on-the-rocks is Wild Turkey Rare Breed.
