    Right with ya there buddy... I see we're in the same location. The ridiculous unseasonal spell of dry air here has been doing the same to me, and several others I know.

    EW black label happens to be one of my favorite bourbons for drinking over ice. As to whether you should... it's often all about climate. If you live where it's hot, ice is usually going to happen. I live inland, so it's hot more often than not.

    My personal rules:

    - Brand new pours are always neat in the Glencairn.
    - Ice is only for well-known pours, where I know what I'm missing when the ice obliterates the nose. Ice is like an atomic bomb that acts on what you can smell in a spirit.
    - Ice is also for dud purchases, where it will dull off-putting notes. Thankfully, pretty rare these days.
    - Ice is as far as I go with desecrating a whiskey... I never put it in Coke. Rum in Coke is fine, but I've never liked it with whiskey of any kind.

    Re: Your favorite bourbon with ice

    I find that I enjoy all types with ice fine but I'll have to be in the mood for it. The one that stood out for me is WTRB with ice.

    I also find that bourbon with some local honey works really well with ice.

    Also like bourbon with a local honey. But my wife objects.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    Ive done honey a few times. If you like the 'caramel' you get in some bourbons, try adding a few drops of dark real maple syrup, not the fake corn-syrup stuff.

    It's a very small can and I have to make it last.

    I got a good laugh out of this.

    Also, having some KCSB on an ice ball. A little on the bitter side for me with ice, but it is nice and refreshing.
