Thread: Bourbon ?

  1. #1

    Bourbon ?

    Should Bourbon be refrigerated or kept at room temp, just wondering?

    Thanks,

    Bourbon ?

    Interesting. I always have kept it at RT. But why not at 4C. Test it and let us know.

    Has this ever been discussed?

    We're all gonna need bigger fridges.

    I generally keep A bottle in there, but that's more for effect than preservation purposes.

    There ain't no "should" in bourbon drinking except you should drink it the way you like it. In the summer, I sometimes like my OGD straight from the freezer. As Squire says, it's a very versatile drink.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    I absolutely agree, there is no wrong way to enjoy bourbon.

    I keep most out and about. But I always like to have one in the freezer during the warmer months.

    Best regards, Tony

    I'm with Tony,
    Keeping whatever dram you prefer really cold in the freezer facilitates having a quick pour of that one anytime, without the needless addition of ice... unless you want that slow dilution, which would happen veeeeeery slowly indeed, if the dram was in the freezer, eh?
    I do keep all my long-term storage Bourbons at room temp, not believing in any need for cold to preserve 'em.

    I figure anything that's been bottled up that long should be consumed relatively soon after opening.

    It's the polite thing to do.

    This is A+ deadpan work.

    I don't keep anything but BT bourbon cream liqueur in the fridge, but our illustrious BOTY likes his HH 6 year BIB chilled in the fridge during the summer. I think that's a pretty strong endorsement.
