Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Place bacon on parchment paper covered rack over small baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes or bacon is cooked but not crisp. Cut 1/3 of bacon slice off and place in small saucepan with honey and lemon zest and heat over low heat until warm. Let stand for 1 hour. Set cherries on remaining piece of bacon, wrap bacon around cherries and skewer together; set aside.
Stir together whisky, honey mixture and ice cubes.
Add ice cubes to a rock glass and strain whisky mixture over top. Garnish with bacon cherry skewer.
