.....but, I prefer a single cube of ice in my whisky. As EJ said, a drop of water opens up the bouquet and will increase your appreciation for that unique whisky, but I find room temperature whisky just too warm for my (damn American) taste. One cube, both cools the whisky, without chilling it to the point of palate numbness, and adds that drop of water that opens it up.

Just finish your drink before the cube has melted to the point of watering down your fine whisky. That's seldom a problem for me! a1_smile.gif

(They have them outside of Kickstarter too - I just mean a "cold object that doesn't melt"?)

Actually the term "on the rocks" comes from the fact that they used to drop river stones from the icy "burn" into the whisky glass, you can buy soapstone cubes (same idea as the titanium ones) for this purpose in many places. My main reason for cautioning against the use of ice is because most ice from your feezer carries a "freezer taste" that can affect your precious libation in a negative fashion, my secondary reason is that I figure if the Whisky maker spent 15+ years getting all the water out of it who am I to put it right back in!

 

 

 

A really nice way to drink whisky is to heat the glass a bit first, that really gets the vapours going!

 

I'm not even going to comment on @colin007 's post other than to ask if he's wearing his wife's panties while enjoying that horrid drink of his.:yucky:

I bought it last year, and I have a little bit left. I'm sure y'all wouldn't approve of me throwing it out?

Wisers(I think that's spelled wrong) is another great Canadian whiskey. I had it on a fishing trip and loved it. I found a liquor store in the are that carries it. Very smooth and quite a bit cheaper than crown royal.

Tossing alcohol in the garbage is abusive, it's alcohol abuse plain and simple.

Why not just buy something that is up to your standards @colin007? Unless you're planning to invite @David in FL and I over for drinks c2_beer.gif , in which case...yeah, you might need to head back to the store...

The Macallan is a fantastic scotch from the sweeter side but it's considerably more expensive than Glenmorangie. Glendronach would be another good candidate. These are all in the "softer" category.

If you want something closer to Crown Royal just take any of the above, add two sugar cubes and piss in it...

I began drinking single malt scotch w Aberlour 10, you can also try the 12.

It was an easy drinker at a reasonable price. The 10 was about $36 and the 12 was just under $50

Blend of single malts from Balvenie, Glenfiddich, and Kininvie for $30 a bottle? I'm intrigued.

Will be whatever swill I can find at the Pepsi Center tonight at the game. Not sure I can stomach paying for more than the $9 draft beer so we'll see.

This is the best blend I've ever encountered for under $30.
