    Thig, I just tried this with a hefty pour of OGD 114. Loved it.

    Thanks for the idea. First sips are straight 114, and then really cool to watch the ice melt into the 114.

    True, with the computer screen to the left of my fly tying desk and the liquor cabinet on the right I do admit to shifting in the chair a bit.

    Nice one man! I used to do this to get a frosty beer mug in college, but I never thought of doing it in a low ball. I will be having a pour of Booker's like this in about 10 mins. Cheers!

I dont know why, but I prefer the glencairn now. I usually pour about a half ounce into it and enjoy something for a while, then a half ounce or so of something else, usually enjoying 2-3 different things a night that way.
    I do the exact same thing. 2-3.5 oz of something in my glencairn and sip for a couple minutes till its gone. Usually enjoying 2-3 things a night that way.

    Always neat for the first pour, usually in a Glencairn or Neat glass. Sometimes adding a few drops of water to see what it does.
    Occasionally an ice ball in a rocks glass. I've got a set of whiskey stones, but don't use them too often.
    I'll work in the occasional Old-Fashioned or Manhattan.
    If I'm just trying to quench a thirst, some bottom-shelf stuff in a cold glass of Simply Lemonade.

    Re: How do you like to drink your bourbon?

    Neat almost exclusively. With a greater than 120 proof I might add a drop or two of water dependent on flavor profile. Very occasionally during the summer I might put a cold whiskey stone in the glass for a bit.

    Re: How do you like to drink your bourbon?

    Always neat, sometimes with the uncut or bf's I'll add a few drops of water, about 1-1.5 oz. out of a glencairn, then rinse and start over again with something different.If I'm in for the long haul as in sculpting or going flatheading for the night, I'll do a large 16 oz.cup with about 2 oz. of lower shelf stuff,and fill the rest with water, that way I get my water intake at the same time, Whiskey flavored water!
