    Your favorite bourbon with ice

    What's your favorite bourbon with ice? I just discovered this weekend that mine is 4RSmB (not the LE). I could not believe how well it stood up to the melting ice (5 cubes). For a bourbon that isn't super high proof, it tasted remarkably good even after the ice melted.

    I hardly ever drink bourbon any way other than neat, but over ice it needs to be high rye and high proof. You need spice to stand up to ice.
    OGD114 works well.

    Knob Single Barrel. 2 or 3 cubes and liquid bliss.

    I also really like Handy with ice but I haven't bought it in a while.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    I must have tried ice with bourbon a dozen times... just can't stand it. It's not a snob thing, I actually think it "looks" incredibly tasty when I see Bourbon on the rocks in commercials and TV, etc.

    But whenever I try, I just get watered down flavors.. and enhanced ethanol. Sometimes I'll get a slightly different flavor profile for a few sips, but it never lasts and has never been worth it... to my own tastes, obviously.

    The only other ones I liked with ice are OGD 114 and Stagg (a few cubes). I was really shocked at the 4R..

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    I should add that I drink a lot of my bourbons with ice... so I may be biased. But I also like a lot of them neat. But I think a few of them really improve with ice. KC1B is one.

    weller_tex, I don't buy Bulleit often but I think it's great with ice, so it stands to reason that 4RSmB works. It's funny though, 4RSmB is one that I almost always drink neat.
