Bourbon or Canadian: 2-3 ice cubes only

Scotch: just a drop of water, sometimes a couple of ice cubes

I did tastings in Scotland. Very interesting when they added a few drops of water and it tasted stronger.

I miss my Scottish smoked whisky.
Why do you miss it? You can buy almost any Scotch in the US that you can in Scotland.

I didn't say I couldn't buy it.
Although I do miss walking into the liquor stores in Glasgow and doing the tastings. It was my first time having smoked whisky.

Depends on the grade of booze. If I have some Crown or Makers mark I let a few cubes melt in it. Higher end bourbon or scotch I have a glass of water on the side to sip.

Not all, though. Fortunately, I have a Scots brother-in-law who travels to the States often for work.

None, adding water or ice changes the flavor.
