    Re: At what temperature is bourbon best enjoyed?

    Always neat if I'm trying a spirit for the first time. Neat in the winter (we have short winters in North Central Texas) and slightly warmer than room temperature. On the rocks is much more appropriate in our hot summers and I can keep the cold glass between the legs to keep the privates cool . I also enjoy gin on the rocks in summer. Very refreshing.

    Re: At what temperature is bourbon best enjoyed?

    Actually, I find many whiskeys improve significantly by a slight warming. I always drink out of a medium size brandy snifter and cup the bowl in my hand. The warming brings out additional pleasant flavors and aromas. In particular, Stagg looses some bite and develops even more richness.

    Re: At what temperature is bourbon best enjoyed?

    Almost always neat for me. On occasion I will throw in some ice cubes.
    I tried to be creative once and I tried the same Bourbon neat, over ice, with a little water, out of the freezer, and then in a warm glass. It was interesting the way it changed the pour in each instance...but just interesting. Neat is my preferred style.

    Re: At what temperature is bourbon best enjoyed?

    I've started storing my bourbons on the bottom shelf of my wine fridge/cellar. This keeps it at a constant temperature of around 60 degrees.

    I prefer the slightly-chilled to true-room-temperature with both whiskey and wine.

    Re: At what temperature is bourbon best enjoyed?

    Depends on the proof... anything under 110 is neat... above that varies... I will drink the Staggs neat sometimes, but a cube or two ice opens it up some...

    Bookers I add ice to temper the edge... Weller I drink neat because it is usually so smooth... etc, etc,
