    I was at an event at the Scottish Malts Whisky Society in London a few months ago. They did a four dram tasting, and really talked you through the process of how and when you might add water. It was really interesting and really opened my eyes to decent single malt scotch.

    I did get a strange look the other week, when having ordered a couple of large Lagavulin 16yr olds, I enquired as to whether they had a pipette to help the addition of water. I settled for a small jug instead.

    I tend to ask for a separate glass with a couple of ice cubes. Not only does it tend to be filtered water, but you can also drip straight from the cube.

    That's a really good idea.

    Ice cube with mine but reading your posts of just adding a drip or two sounds interesting and will try it out.

    Neat for me unless I'm drinking cask strength, then a few drops of water as it really does help to open it up.

    I collect Ardbeg, got a 1974 Single Cask 1 of 133 bottles, also some limited editions, Lord of the Isles etc..

    Always neat for me. I know that a drop of spring water opens up the amber nectar more, but for my tastes (even with cask strength) I prefer it untouched by ice or water.
