    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    Rarely add ice now a days, used to be a lot.

    Currently, ice with ECBP is a killer. It becomes a thick chewy goodness.

    I have learned and agreed that ice mute the nose a little though.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    Generally not too much on the rocks for me other than during the warm summer days while grilling,but if I had to pick I would say HH 6yr BIB and OGD BIB.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    Don't often drink on the rocks, but OGD 114 is what I'll drink when I do - excusing a bit of thread drift, but when I want it cold in the summer, the HH BiBs out of the 'fridge or freezer is the way to go.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    I never drink straight bourbon over ice, for the reason I mention here:

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    Hot as shit tonight, decided I needed a refreshing bourbon experience, so I threw a huge cube in a generous pour of EWSB 2001, wow, despite the low proof this is holding up exceptionally well, the nose may even be better, i think i might prefer this on ice

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    Been battling congestion and a sore throat for the past few days so I haven't been reaching for anything too good since my taste buds are all wonky, so Evan Williams Black over some crushed ice has been the nightly pour--cool, slightly antiseptic, alcohol to kill the germs....it's definitely better than a salt water gargle for a sore throat!

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    I think all the HH bonded whiskeys work well over ice.

    The other time I like bourbon over ice is when I'm cooking in the kitchen. The smell of simmering garlic, flour on hands and a mind in several places at once is not conducive to discovering every nuance of a whiskey, so I'll either make a Manhattan on the rocks, or pour something like RittBIB or WT101 over the rocks.

    That's one I would never have with ice - just love it neat. Just goes to show that everyone's taste is different!

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    Is drinking bourbon neat a relatively new phenomenon that came about as whiskey went from something that people just drank to something that people "experienced"? I always find it interesting to see how the dudes drank their whiskey back in the day where manly men drank in their offices and would encourage their secretaries' good work with a nice pat on the rump. From what I've read (and if Mad Men is to be believed), ice with whiskey was almost automatic. I know Sinatra's drink of choice was JD on the rocks and in Mad Men they always asked the secretaries to bring them ice.

    I admit that on lower/mid shelf pours I almost always put them on ice assuming their proof is 100 or above. Sometimes I feel like I'm not manly enough when I do it. But if the guys who beat the Germans and Japanese in an away game drank their whiskey on the rocks who am I to deviate?
