im not an ice person generally, just due to the basic idea of it watering things down.
Things that i do like to drink cool, i keep them in the fridge......soda, juice, tea....no ice, just refrigerated. that way i enjoy the good taste of the beverage without feeling like i have to drink it before the ice melts and dilutes it. the only thing I put ice into is water, and only in the summer.
whiskey/bourbon i only drink neat. thats how i started out, and that just stuck. ive tried it with ice and it was the same basic idea, it melts and reduces the taste i was enjoying in the first place. I dont even want bourbon to be cool or cold. room temp is best to me. I keep my bottles in my desk, as thats where i usually will have a drink or two while winding down before bed.
