    Neat and at room tem. Whisky should sit in your glass for ten min before drinking it.

    Correct about the first 2 points, but not the latter. Absurd - all the booze evaporates! Also good luck restraining yourself. And what about when you want a 2nd dram? Impractical.

    i was a bit of a Whisky snob years ago, only drinking single malts and neat, i had a pretty good bar tricks - blindfold test etc. until i wore a kilt to an Irish wedding. I got a lot of attention and jokingly offerd pictures with me for a Whisky - many poses later - taste buds were ruined forever, i blame the Irish Whisky brand Powers. that and different Whiskys in same glass (boke)

    Try this for single malts if you haven't already. take a straw with bottled water and use as a dripper - 2 drops to start. depending on the Whisky, it can make a massive difference - opening up the flavours.

    these days, i always add a splash of water to my malt Whisky and always have ice with any blended, like most things in life - if its good its good!

    Yes, ive been told many times that adding a drop or two of water brings out the oils, like rain releasing Petrichor on a dry concrete path aftrr a summer shower. I still dont do it

    Email me a snifter would you? I'll be the judge. While you're at it, fax me a cigar to go with it...
