WTRB with crushed ice is great for me

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.
PHC #1 (I don't remember the proof, but it was the 1st bottling) is wonderful over crushed ice.
I think Grand Dad holds up right well.
We're Bourbon Geeks, it's who we are, it's what we do.
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.
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.
