As this is my first post to this fine forum I was wondering how you take your drink. I know there are some who enjoy it neat, some who who like it on the rocks and some with a splash of water. There are even some who like it with coke or make a Manhattan.
As for me, I like it neat. I have tried with ice and don't like fine bourbon cold. I have tried with some water and couldn't get next to that either. I pour about and ounce and a half of room temp bourbon and enjoy it over a period of 20-30 mins.
I am not posting to say one is superior over another as this is a personal choice of taste. I am just curious how you take yours.
