It's Christmas time and that always brings a bottle of B&B into the house. Cool

Maker's Mark bourbon in my Old Fashions. The angostura bitters add just the right amount of Christmas spices to the drink! Big Grin

Perhaps a dram of Provenance Single Malt Winter Distillation before dinner.


Just one more sip.

I always prefer a single drop or even two of water off of an ice cube in my single.

In Scotland, no ice! They'll add a few drops of water though.


Just one more sip.

Completely agree, a drop or two, off of an ice cube, but never ice.

Btw, w+a, I had a nice discussion about single malts with Olivier Humbrecht this summer. His wife is Scottish and they were about to leave for a vacation in Scotland. He gave the name of a single malt site he frequents.


Just one more sip.

I hold Olivier in high regard, and would think you would connect with him as well, Board-O.

I thought he was a true Renaissance man, and one of the finest visits to a winery I have ever experienced.

A single malt with 1/2 of a tiny ice cube is perfect and about the same as a couple drops of water and doesn't chill the scotch. I would never think of using a regular sized ice cube.

i personally dont like it chilled at all, it numbs the mouth for some of the sweetness and secondary flavors.

i do the 2-3 drops of water but definitely at room temp.

Yes it does. That's ice's defining characteristic.

I've been seeking an introduction to her for some time. I just can't see myself forking over for what are probably inferior US versions.

I have a personal preference for the
whiskeys of Ireland. From what I have observed not a whole lot of people have ventured into this venue. I would suggest that you scotch fans give it a try. For everyday drinking I prefer Jamison. For great sipping I strongly suggest Blackbush.
