The best bourbon bottles for mixing and straight sipping.
Bourbon Barrel Breakdown
To some, bourbon is the foundation for favorite concoctions; for others there's no way to take it but straight. The beauty of the spirit is that every way is the right way, provided you have the right bottle. Depending on the mixer, a cocktail bourbon needs to be either mild or so distinct it defines a drink's personality. If the only place that seems appropriate to add a splash is the bottom of an empty rocks glass, you have a winner for a great solo sipper.
