I see a few people in this thread enjoy JBB on the rocks... what do you guys feel is the difference in tasting notes with ice vs neat? Any new flavors pop up when had with ice?
I really like the JBB... though I'm not sure it can compete with BT which is only a few dollars more here. I really wish it was just a bit cheaper, as I like it better then EWB... but EWB is literally half the price when comparing handles. I guess my point is, JBB would be an incredible value pour... though (for me) it's price is just a touch out of the comfortable 'value pour' price range.
EWB: $15 per handle
JBB: $30 per handle
If JBB could live in say, the $22-$25 per handle range, I'd never look back to EWB.
Anyway, back on topic --- I'll be enjoying some JBB tonight while watching The Killing with my wife.
Weird... only 3-4 days after opening the bottle, the sweetness has all but disappeared and all that's left is the oak. Anyone one else with similar experience with JBB?

Whoa, whoa, whoa. You just blew my mind.

Henry Hill died yesterday, so I am watching Goodfellas. I finally grabbed a bottle of Jim Beam Rye. I like it, great after taste i must say. I am enjoying it with a Man O' War Puro Authentico cigar. If any of you dig strong cigars, I suggest you pick up some of these! I love it.
