Adding water?  Maybe if I run out of Hawaiian Punch.

Depends on the whiskey and my mood.  Bourbon usually gets ice.  Scotch sometimes.  Rye I use for making a mixed drink and that gets ice.

Doesn't really matter when you're just going to butt chug it anyway.

Water. No water. Whiskey still sucks, and real men drink beer.

/Now stop buying whiskey so the price will drop for me!!

I always put a little water in my Jack Daniel's.

It really opens up a Bourbon's flavour.

I'll toss a couple ice cubes into blended whiskey, but I like my single malts neat.

I only drink cask strength as God intended. You 80 proof farkers are titty babies
 
2017-08-17 01:56:08 PM  
Typically, I only add water to cask strength whiskeys. I've only got Oban in the cabinet at the moment, as scotch money buys a lot of craft beer.

Gents, please! Sip your whisky is the quiet solitude that it demands.
If you want to bicker like ladies at a Tupperware party, go to the nearest sports bar & chug a few beers.

I was taught to drink whiskey the proper way by Booker Noe himself.  He drank his whiskey with spring water.  If a guy has his face on a bottle of Jim Beam, and his own brand of Bourbon, I'm going to trust the fellow.
 
2017-08-17 01:58:36 PM  
Its an easy experiment.   Two small drops of water from an eyedropper can completely change the taste of whiskys.   For some it opens it up and its better... for some worse. imho.

2017-08-17 01:59:13 PM  
a *splash* of water is the best way to really taste a whiskey, it brings out aromatics in the spirit that get lost otherwise.   Most whiskeys it barely matters, but if you are paying more than say $50/bottle you at least owe it to yourself to try it once.   and room temp, ice just dulls your ability to taste
 
2017-08-17 01:59:39 PM  
So pouring it on a brownie is okay, then?  Just so long as there's no water involved?

I don't like spending much money on getting drunk. My whiskey of choice is Jameson's, I put two very large ice cubes in a glass and pour whiskey on it then drink it, then pour more whiskey on it and drink it. I usually get 3 or four good sized pours over the same two ice cubes.

Feel free to mock me I'm too blitzed to care.

2017-08-17 02:02:06 PM  
This is good - I need advice on how to drink properly. My old stand-by of drinking stale beer out of ash trays has become endangered since so many bars no longer allow smoking.

That's good. I can't drink mixed drinks anymore. They go down like farking candy then i get in trouble. Beer, or neat for me please.

Raised in a Scots household, I was always told "don't add anything to whisky. Including an "e".

However, after a trip to Kentucky a few years back, I realized that there is good, even very good, bourbon out there.

I also learned to add a little water to open up Scotch single malts. It really does make a difference.

tl;dr: I moved from the cave of ignorance to the broad, sunlit uplands of knowledge.

Whiskey comes out of the still at well over 100 proof. By the time it reaches you it's already watered

Dp you drink it neat or do you add a very small amount of water to it? I do both.
 
2017-08-17 02:05:28 PM  
My brother would just put a straw in his bottle of Jack. I don't  drink any more, but I always liked it with ice. However you drink it is fine, just please don't drink and drive. It's better to live to drink another day.

For Koreans in L.A. it was Crown with tea ... but because they're the same color, I think it was also to pretend that they were macho and drinking as much as those who weren't watering down their liquor.

Of course they don't, even the liquor was trying to warn you.
