    Yeah, EW Black goes ok with some ice.

    I always buy a bottle of Rare Breed before the first VA Tech football game each season. I think pretty much all of WT lineup takes ice really well.

    Re: Bourbons that really SHINE with ice and water

    Personally I've never had one that "shined" on ice. I may like it well enough for a sip or two but always end up regretting the decision. Just not to my taste I reckon. Now, you will certainly find a bottle in my fridge.

    Yes, I felt the same way until I started some experiments with everything I had, and Beam White and ETL came out as ahead of everything else when it comes to shining in water. And I don't just mean an ice cube or two, I'm talking heavy dilution with ice/water! Since I started the thread, let me add Beam Black to the list.

    Re: Bourbons that really SHINE with ice and water

    One that i did NOT like over ice was MM. I ordered one at a Thunder game and it just tasted like weak, bourbon-flavored water.
    Well, how can it not be McCormick's, the $7 well bourbon of the finest dive bars? Tastes like kerosene and sadness.

    Fans can drink bourbon at Thunder games?

    Wow. No wonder the place is packed for every game!

    Re: Bourbons that really SHINE with ice and water

    Most bourbons I've owned have been tried with ice or water at some stage, but it's usually the higher proof or burning finish bourbons that I prefer to add ice or water to. Old Charter 13yo or Fighting Cock come to mind as ones I prefer over ice or watered down.

    My drink of choice used to be EWB on the rocks. I still occasionally pour one. The BIB does hold up better to ice, but I'm less inclined to enjoy it that way since I can't get it here. I had a SB EC12 that was a vanilla bomb on the rocks. That was some good stuff!
