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

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.

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.

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.
Good start of the month yesterday night:
-2005 Nicolas Joly Clos de la Coulée de Serrant
-1998 Altesino BdM Montosoli (wow!)
-1997 Pian delle Vigne BdM (getting tired)
-1990 Suiduiraut

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