Personally, I prefer a favorite Rum over an ice cube,... or in a cocktail, occasionally..., but when I'm not feeling up to par, a Hot Toddy made with Knob Creek really hits the spot.

I'm partial to a Manhattan, although I usually prefer it with Rye.

I've had a few Bourbons and the only Bourbon I have at home is Maker's Mark. Since I have such a weak girly palette for any 40% abv for that matter, I have to mix them with Cola to dissable or unpower the harsh taste.. however no Bourbon, for me so far, is better mixed than Rye Whisky with Cola.

The Rye just ads this distinct favorable flavour for me over the Bourbons, I've tasted so far.

Hands-down a Sazerac, as long as the bourbon isn't sweet. (Rye is the preferred spirit for the drink.)

If all you've got is a sweet bourbon (or there's no absinthe/pernod/herbsaint or peychaud's bitters to be found), then Old Fashioned would be my next choice.

You might want to try a bourbon with a high rye content to mix with your cola. Two I like are Four Roses Single Barrel and Bulleit. Makers Mark has wheat in the mash bill instead of rye, making it a bit lighter. Makers would not go well with cola, though is nice with ice and a good beginners bourbon. I rarely mix whiskey with cola, but when I do its only with Coke in a glass bottle made with real sugar, makes a big difference.

Anything from Willett's. Some are just a bit better than others.

I enjoy many bourbons neat, or with a little bit of water.

When mixing, a manhattan (even better with rye than bourbon) is quite nice.
