    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.
    I don't buy Bulleit Bourbon often, but buy the Rye quite a bit. Bulleit Bourbon is actually a dollar more than 4RSmB here so I just get it instead since I like the spiciness of 4R better..seems the Bulleit has more of the 4R juice floral notes to me.

    I much prefer 4R as well but I can often get Bulleit for around $20 on sale.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    Dangerous mixing ice and bourbon, for me it leads to gulping as I battle the melt and the lowering of sensation.
    BUT on a really hot day a couple ounces of WTRB with a single cube can work.

    Oh, jebus! "No, no more soup for you!"

    ...but I don't put ice in anything. Water yes, ice no. I don't even like my cokes cold.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    PHC #1 (I don't remember the proof, but it was the 1st bottling) is wonderful over crushed ice.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    I used to drink bourbon on ice regularly but I found myself drinking way too much way too fast. So now I only drink it neat. It acts as my bourbon restrictor plate if you will.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    All of my pours are on ice. 4 oz bourbon 1 or 2 cubes depending on proof. I do agree that high rye aren't altered as much as the ice melts.
