    Re: How do you enjoy your bourbon?

    I prefer mine on the rocks, but there are times I drink it with water, a 3 to 1 or 4 to 1 ratio depending on the bourbon. There are those times, like with a very fine cigar, I drink it neat. This, for me, makes for a very nice balance.

    Cool Re: How do you enjoy your bourbon?

    I enjoy bourbon in several ways. Straight, on the rocks, or with water. Sometimes with a little water, sometimes a lot. I occasionally enjoy a highball, but rarely made with anything sweet. I prefer something such as Perrier or club soda. And I have a few bourbon cocktails that I really enjoy, especially the Manhattan cocktail and the Sazerac cocktail.

    Re: How do you enjoy your bourbon?

    like many here, my choice depend on the mood.

    at times, i gotta have a few oz. neat.

    sometimes mixing with Cola (Coke Zero these days) feels right.

    when needing to reminisce, it's Old Forester and Coke.

    Re: How do you enjoy your bourbon?

    Hi Jim, I no longer drink any ardent spirit neat except for a tasting/evaluation. If the whiskey's good it will stand up well in a cocktail or diluted with Perrier.

    Re: How do you enjoy your bourbon?

    I take it neat, in a round tumbler. In a bar, I'll sometimes pair a shot with a draft. Back in the day, of course, that shot would be downed in a flash, followed by the beer-blast. Now, though, I just slowly sip the shot as I slowly drink the beer.

    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.

    Hello Jim,

    Usually I drink it neat. May be on occasion a cube of ice in warmer weather.

    Kindest,

    Geb

    Re: How do you enjoy your bourbon?

    I am still trying everything I can to find out what I like and don't like. I usually start with it neat, and add water slowly to try to recognize the settle changes. I will have a occasional pour of MM or WR on the rocks, and love my coke with a generous pour of Weller Special Reserve.

    Re: How do you enjoy your bourbon?

    Neat. Occasionally with a little water. I usually drink some water on the side, however.

    I started off drinking bourbon and coke, and occasionally will have that, although usually just at a bar. I'll also order manhattans at a bar.
