In general, I don't mix my Bourbon with anything, other than once in a while a cube of ice, or a little water; but it's not like I never mix any with a soda. I never did like Bourbon and Coke; but I do occasionally mix a 'dud' bourbon with Vernor's Ginger Ale, or 'Fiery' Ginger Ale (two more different Ginger Ales you likely won't find). The two make quite different Hi-balls; but I like each for it's own quaint qualities, when I'm in that mood. I've never tried GTS.... or any rare or long-aged Bourbon with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.
