Whiskey with or without ice?!

Question: Whiskey with or without ice!?
Without, definitely!.Without!.!.!.!.anything else!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

It depends completly on the whisky!.

For your cheaper types and your blends then it doesnt matter what you throw at it; water, ice, coke etc!.

When you start on the scottish malts then it depends what region it comes from!. Some of the more peaty once from the highlands may benefit from being opened up with equal parts water!. Some of the lighter sea air ones are great on their own!. Malts and ice dont tend to go together as you cant taste the flavours as its too cold, then it melts and dillutes it too much!.

Scottish whisky should be drunk in a whiskey tumbler not a shot glass! leave them for vodka and jagermeister!.

But its completly your choice!. Ignore the people who insist on straight all the time, they probably just heard it somewhere!.

I do tend to like mine straight though!. Im a Scotsman so I cringe when its mixed with coke!

(Whisky = Scottish, Whiskey = Irish/Canadian/American)Www@FoodAQ@Com

whisky (Scotch)- without ice, just a few drops of water to "open it up"

whiskey- particularly bourbon, yes ice, but it has to be good fresh ice made with filtered or spring water!.

Canadian Whiskey- ginger-ale & iceWww@FoodAQ@Com
