Default Imperial Stout opinions

I've got some leftover grains from my last partial batch of stout that I brewed and would be interested in using some of them up for a 3 gallon (or more) batch of a strong Imperial Stout with an addition of bourbon soaked oak chips in the secondary

Ive got:
.75# Carafa III
.75# Black roasted barley
.5# Cara 60L

Anybody have opinions on type/amount of DME/LME? Other grains? Fermentables? Hops? Yeast?

I'm looking to get above 8% ABV

This will be a partial mash

Thanks

Here's a stout I made last year. I let is sit for 1month in the primary, 2 months in the secondary, and 3 months in the bottle. It was delicious...
