There will come a time when your pallet will mature and you’ll look back and think WTF were you doing mixing a perfectly good bourbon with anything. Until then, believe it’s a good thing and enjoy. We’ll still be here when you’ve ‘grown up’ and realize the mistake you made. 🤣😂🤣😂😳

That all depends on the bourbon. Ive had some that I'd rather pour out than drink neat.

Agreed. In fact, I have pored some out. That’s what I love about the search. It’s not ‘what’s best’, it’s what I like best about it. Everybody has different taste buds. What I like, you may think tastes like shit. And that’s ok. I will generally give a whole bottle a shot to convince me it’s something I can drink again. Nearly every bottle mentioned on this thread I have either tried or tried to find/taste. I will try any bourbon/scotch twice! 😁😁

Enjoying a nice quiet evening watching the Coca-Cola 600 with a tumbler (or 2) of Jameson’s Cold Brew. When you need something with a little different taste it fills the square... 🥃 Cheers

His full response to the question...

JR: Well, good bourbon, you just drink it out of anything — even the bottle [laughs]. I like mine neat or on the rocks. In hot weather I like it chilled a little bit. But you drink it anyway you like it. If you like to mix it, that’s fine with me. But me personally, I love to sit down with my wife at nights, read or watch television and enjoy the flavor of bourbon. I sip on it. My wife loves Wild Turkey bourbon sours. One of the best mixers I think you can have with good flavored bourbon is ginger ale or ginger beer. They marry together well.

Where do you find your Jeffersons Reserve?
In the columbus area its pretty easy to find...at least for me. Arena Wine and Spirits almost always has it. Was just in Northwest Wine and Liquor on Bethel road this afternoon. They had five different kinds. Jefferson Reserve, Oceans, Oceans cask strength, Jefferson Cabernet and Jefferson Rum.

I ended up picking up a pint of Makers 46. Am giving it a taste tonight.

On the rocks with a splash of water to open up the flavor profile. I prefer stone cubes so it doesn't water down past the initial splash. I steer clear of whisky and bourbon at the house as there's no such thing as moderation, just a race to the bottom. 😅.
I have been wanting to try some of those whiskey stones. Recommend any particular kind / brand?

I prefer Maker’s 46 to the regular. Good stuff!

Ok. I laughed my butt off at this video. The 'experiment' portion of the vid is pretty much busted because the canning lid's rubber is what got into the various whiskeys and not anything to do with the actual heating of the liquor. The shenanigans part of the vid, which starts at the 10 min mark, however made me fall over laughing. The one liners and innuendo are great.
