Looking for suggestions, with a cube is the only way I know.

If it's a single malt that's at least 12 years old take it neat. Don't screw it up with ice or water.

rocks or strait, depends on the specific booze
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 1:06:10 PM EST
Straight up

Finished.

Just a cube or two. Mixing good spirits is a waste.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 1:06:51 PM EST
Ice or straight up! The same way I like my Burbon!!!!

Glenlivet 12 year.. its strong. Im used to drinking crown with a swirl of coke.

On ice with a splash of water.

If Single Malt. Ice only.

Neat is the only way.

I am not a fan of any hard liquor, but even I know that there's no point in adulterating whiskey.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 1:14:22 PM EST
neat, or with one rock

i like glenlivet 12 and 15 y.o.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 1:16:14 PM EST
couple of cubes, couple of fingers

Pour it in a glass. Drink it.

By the way, it was a silly question. It's not very difficult to experiment!

Fella im sure there are some things I know a whole lot about that you dont - but a smart man is willing to ask questions when he just doesnt know

I trade it in for bourbon.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 1:37:38 PM EST
Straight up, room temperature.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 1:38:05 PM EST
In Decatur last night I enjoyed it at first on the rocks. Then room temp, then back to the rocks. The poker game got too intense....couldn't get more ice for a while!
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 1:39:47 PM EST
I like it with a cube or 2.

My favorites include an 18yr Macallan, and my "normal" scotch would be Glenmorangie, I like the Madiera finish, think it's a 12yr old.

Scotch is a little smoother for my tastes.

Good Scotch has to be straight up! (or with a small splash of H2O)

Tonight I think I'll try some MaCallan Fine Oak 10 & Bowmore 17.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 1:50:56 PM EST
I just got 2 bottles for my birthday. A 12 year old Johnnie Walker Black label and a 18 year old Glenlivet. I am enjoying them slowly, but always straight up.

+ a bunch. I don't think the blended Scotch has been made that's fit for human consumption, and few of the single malts are any more enjoyable than a glass of burnt dirt.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 2:20:34 PM EST
Repeatedly!
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 2:26:18 PM EST
Single malt. A cube or two or straight up but I like something to chase it down with if no ice.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 2:30:06 PM EST
Keep the bottle in the freezer
Neat but frozen!!!
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 2:40:55 PM EST

Blends...with soda water.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 2:52:00 PM EST

For me just a splash of water. The water actually unlocks some flavors hidden in Scotch.

This is what I have been savoring lately.

Laphroaig Quarter Cask. Not cheap, but definitely worth it.

I prefer it with a bit of orange juice and a maraschino cherry. Don't forget the little umbrella.

Just kidding. Straight. Laphroaig.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 5:49:21 PM EST
[Last Edit: 2/19/2006 5:50:35 PM EST by DocH]
Lagavulin, when I can find it locally.

Laphroaig or Macallan, otherwise.

Couple of drops of water to open the "nose" a little.

Anything else is sacrilege and an abomination.

Blended whiskey, on the other hand, is a pitiful simulacrum of real whiskey, and is deserving of whatever crap you want to mix it with. Cherry Coke, Mr. Pib, Gatorade, fizz water, fruity juice, knock yourself out.

I used to enjoy it neat only. Then I started adding one ice cube, letting it melt, then drinking. Lately I've been finding that I am adding about 4 parts club soda to 1 part scotch. And I also like to add some splashes of Angostura Bitters as well. Very good on the old stomach.
