    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    WT 101 and Garrison Brothers; I think both are better on ice. Most bourbons - ice is also fine, but they don't improve.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    I like just enough crushed ice to thinly cover the bottom of my glass and then add 3 or 4 fingers of anything over 110 proof. Lower proof brands and/or smaller pours are usually neat.

    My favorites with ice are high proof rye's, KCSB and OGD 114.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    I follow the tendency towards higher proof bourbons with ice. Every now and then I will have Handy or ECBP with one of those big ice balls.

    Not a bourbon, but Mellow Corn is a new favorite of mine with ice as well.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    About the only time I drink bourbon with ice is on a really hot day. As someone already mentioned, I tend to start gulping when it gets diluted... and that leads to no good! I do like WT101 out of the freezer quite a bit, though. 99% of the time I prefer any whisk(e)y neat, at room temp.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    Normally, at home, I drink bourbon neat. However, if I order a drink at a restaurant, I don't fight the battle and just order it on the rocks. I think WT101, Bookers and Woodford hold up well. If I decide to add a cube at home, I have found that ECBP, EC12, WT101 and OGD114 also hold up well.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    I pretty much always drink bourbon over ice. I know that's blasphemy around here. But to be honest it's how I started drinking bourbon and to this day is still how I enjoy it the most.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    I rarely use ice any more, just a bit of water if I want some of the heat out. That being said, on Christmas vacation I had a double of Knob Creek, added two small cubes of ice, and it was delicious. KCSB does well with ice, too.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    I try everything I open neat in a Glencairn. But I have a square rocks glass that perfectly holds a 2" cube upon which I like to pour the occasional barrel proofer. I especially like some of the Willett FE's this way. But agree with several on here that its usually a rye or high rye bourbon that holds up best. Generally don't drink wheated bourbons this way even WLW.

    Well, tonight an Old Fitz BIB tastes pretty good on ice.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    Whenever my wife and I have our 7- and 4-year old kids with us at a hotel, and we hit the pool or hot tub w/ 'em, I try to always have a HH BiB (any variant) and any BT white dog (ditto) with me to pour over ice into plastic hotel cups. The white dog, in particular, not only stands up great to ice but also easily passes as water to interested observers when necessary.
