    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    I've always thought Knob Creek SB at 120 proof (bought around here at $19.99) was a great pour with a cube or two.

    I like this list too...

The white dog, in particular, not only stands up great to ice but also easily passes as water to interested observers when necessary.

    I like your work and honesty. I love sneaking a hipflask of booze to the football, sneaky drinking is always fun, dont need to get plastered, but the odd sneaky sip is liberating.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    I'll water down most stuff over 100 proof, but with water, not ice. I find myself drinking it too fast with ice so I can get the flavor before it's too diluted. Depending on the size of the pour, I'll go with one cube on occasion. Or maybe one of those ice balls if it's something lower shelf and lower proof.

    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    Just buy your own barrel and hook it up to the icemaker on your fridge. Then your drink will get more flavorful as the ice melts!

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    My two favorites over ice are ETL and JB White. I actually prefer both of these on the rocks versus neat and both of these stand up to the chill and dilution remarkably well.

    I'm not a huge fan of wheaters in general, but I think the SB blend is much better over crushed ice than neat.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    All of them that I like. I just enjoy them the way I want them at the time, if that's neat, over ice, in my coffee, in a cocktail or just with some diet coke.

    This is the correct answer. The best way to drink anything is...just how you enjoy it.
