    I once saw a guy drop three ice cubes into a glass of single malt Scotch. I asked him if he'd like a squirt of ketchup to change the flavor too. What a knot head!.

      See, I disagree, John. I've heard it called "cracking" the scotch. I think it brings the flavor out to have it over a bit of ice.

        You, sir, are a truly wise man.

          Single malt Scotch is truly a holy, perfect mixture in of itself, unadulterated by nothing. The addition of anything else only bastardizes its original taste and intent. Blended Scotch is not the same and you can mix it with orange juice if you have a mind to.

            I disagree. I too don't drink whiskey other than neat (no matter single or blended) however, different people enjoy their alcohol differently. If you have the money to- by all means, mix your Lagavulin with soda water.
            I'll eat my heart out in the corner, but I'll never intervene with your choice.

            On a side note- there are special ice cubes designed for single malt, its a sort of stone that doesn't melt, just cools the drink. Also, most "experts" recommend a few drops of water in a single malt to "open it up".

            Again- I don't do that, but if it works for you- go ahead...
