Dear Lady, it seems that I am called on to rescue you...for in my humble opinion putting ice with Ballantine's Scotch is nae a crime. But if you put ice with Glenfiddich that would be Sacrilege of the highest order.

What shall be my punishment then!!!

Because I put ice in my beer and yes even in Bushmills and Glenfiddich.

Sorry, I admitted in being a ninny... when it come to booze I'm only thinking of my poor liver. hypocrite.gif

Dark coffee in the mornings.....usually expirement with different flavors.

Iced tea during the day.

Beer in the evening...(Guiness, Newcastle, Bass typically). Some of the darker micro-brews that Sam Adams is coming out with are fairly good.

Hot tea in the late evenings.....if the beer hasn't taken up all of the space.

Although on eof my favorite after-dinner drinks is a good Port.

Black coffee in the morn, different hot teas at mid morn, water at lunch, again hot tea early afternoon, small black coffee late afternoon, abit of cognac at work days end.
Like you, a nice Cockburns 10 year old Tawny Port after dinner is a great dessert.

In the morning I like to have coffee.

During the day mostly water or herbal tea like heather or camomille and water at supper time and after supper sometimes,like now before bedtime I sip a scotch (Ballantine's) with ice. O.K O.K I know this is a sacrilege...but I admit being a ninny.So what! tongue.gif

MyLOA, Abit of ice with scotch before bed makes it medicinal and hence acceptable under the circumstance. Its like the spoonful of sugar helps the frozen water go done. tongue.gif
I will also accept adding ice to blended scotch whisky but do struggle with the single malts being iced. angel_not.gif

Absolutely. Just got turned on to it a few months ago. There is a somewhat local winery here that makes an excellent one.

a bit* of branch or a bit of frozen branch opens up the flavor of the scotch and the bouquet ... if you are a noser..... which is half the experience of scotch imho *(the operative word is "bit" one small cube of the frozen.)note.gif

Peanut Butter and Chocolate, two great tastes that go great together.
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

Scotch and Water, two tastes that clash. Why mix good Scotch with poor water?

Why??

reread my post rolleyes.gif

maybe they clash iyho... but it does just what i posted.
Some tasters do not add any water sometimes i do sometimes i do not. But, water "marries" with the whisky and releases additional aromas you may not have noticed at first. but it does not CLASH!

This is why you drink scotch with a glass of water. A good glass of water minus the fluorine and chlorine does add to the "breath" of scotch. Which is why I really don't mind the ice with blended but prefer a glass of water next to my single malt. Splashes are ok, I guess. Aroma is definitely part of the scotch drinking experience and are a delight to the nose as well as the palate. .

Druid, UlsterScotNutt, dundee my dear gentlemen I didn't mean to start quite a stir with my drinking scotch or malt with ice....lol...but all the same I appreciate your opinion on it.

But to tell you the truth while I was in Scotland and Ireland I went to different pubs and distilleries and drank the stuff without. I enjoyed it very much but the first time I tasted it I almost fell of my chair and vapors coming out of my ears and ended up with two red spots on my cheeks for the rest of the day.I felt quite hot even though cold outside.

And yes it's true dundee that ice brings out the aroma and flavor as long as you don't overload the glass with it. And anything of alcohol I prefer with ice simply because I like my drink cold.

One drink that I don't put ice in is port which I drink very little at the time because as a migraine sufferer I have to be very careful.

So gentlemen I lift my glass to you. LOA cheers.gif

UlsterScotNutt, and dundee, I am honoured that you allowed me to be the first to respond to the toast from the Bonnie Lass. Lady of Avalon, I raise my glass to you and offer a toast to your continued good health, good intelligence, and good charm.
