I believe adding a splash of water actually opens up favors in scotch/whiskey.

Opens up favors?
I’ve drunk scotch with many a woman.
Never had that effect that I’ve seen.

reply

Yes water indeed does open the flavor

Yeah.
Can't do it.
Especially since I drink it straight from the bottle.

Cuz you heard that puts hair on your chest?

Newsflash, macho man: all whisky has water added.
Every bottle ever made.

I tried adding water to whiskey once and it tasted horrible. Nothing against chasing straight whiskey with nice, cold water, though.

reply

Exactly. The best scotch I ever had was one day when I drank about half of a glass of J&B on the rocks and then came back with most of the ice was melted and the taste was so smoky and subtle and not overwhelmed by volatile alcohol ... still remember that one drink years later, and the scotch was not even that great. It doesn't matter.

Whiskey is good with water added ... what are you some hardcore alcoholic?

35 years ago I was drinking JB at Caesars Palace at the barge. (Great times back then) And it does taste good with a splash of water.
