I like to go with brown butter washed.

Melt and brown stick of butter, follow the rest of your directions, and you get a delicious, versatile flavored bourbon.

An Old Fashioned with a barrel proof, brown butter bourbon, 1/4 oz demerara simple, 2 dashes Ango and 1 dash moroccan bitters is ambrosia.

I've had more trouble with bacon and a greasy funk as a wash, but I may have let the grease sit too long.
