    Perhaps you can convince Barfy to have a tasting when we get back from Vietnam.
    We're stopping in Singapore on the way home to stock up.

    I have had a bottle of glenfiddich solera reserve 15yo single malt open. It's not lasting long, its very smooth. I am not a regular scotch drinker but I am very much enjoying this.

    I also have a glenlivet french oak reserve 15yo going. At first try I didn't like the long lingering after taste and put it away. I've given it another go and is really quite nice over ice. I like it.

    You're putting 15yo scotch on ice? Heathen!

    If the fire isn't dying down, what do you do with it? Drink it?

    Ice has it's place. I find the Jamesons caskmate or a base model Jura take to ice really nicely.
    I would spoil any of my nice whiskies with it though.

    Most scotch aficionados, including those hired by the distilleries, agree that adding a bit of water to Scotch will enhance the flavor.

    Claiming Scotch is ruined by ice is a bit silly. Scotch is from a pretty fucking cold place, so traditionally they wouldn't want ice in anything, as you would be drinking it to warm up. They also drink their beer pretty warm for the same reason, but drinking beer at UK temps would make most Aussies send it back and ask for a colder one, you even have to be careful what you order in the UK, because in many bars only things like Fosters are served at a temp that Aussies would consider acceptable.

    So if Scotch is ruined by ice then you can also argue that Beer is too because the cold stops the flavors from really "opening up". Im not saying Scotch should be served super chilled like they do in an average nightclub, but putting one or two cubes in and then letting it gradually melt in a hot climate is hardly sacrilege.

    I'll add a touch of water to most whisky with an ABV greater than 47%, although I'll always nose & try it straight up first.

    Laager should generally be served cold.

    Ale should generally be served not quite as cold, and is often served too cold in Australia.

    White wine should be served cool, and in Australia it's often served too cold because most bars don't have a separate wine fridge to their soft drink fridge / cool room.

    Red wine should obviously be served at a reasonably normal room temperature.

    But then again when you're drinking, enjoy things as you like.

    I should have prefaced my post that I prefer whisky without ice as I like the profile in that form, and that adding ice would spoil it for my palate.

    Adding water or ice may make it more enjoyable for some but it's generally not for me.

    I don't mind adding a little chilled water, - doing that, the flavour & strength of the drink is consistent throughout, but don't like putting ice in - the ice melts, and by the time you're down to the end of the glass, you have whisky flavoured water.

    I actually prefer some Death Star action myself for when I drink spirits straight.

    The mass chills it nicely yet prevents too much contamination from the Albany rainwater I make the ice space stations from.



    Not into Whisky that much though Glenfiddich 12y.o. is O.K. I do keep a few bottles of various types around for visitors to try.
