I hate it on the rocks. The more the ice melts the worse the whisky tastes. With every sip the quantity of whisky decreases, with every moment the ratio of water increases. By the end it tastes absolutely awful. Ice forces you to drink it quickly, when you should be spending twenty to thirty minutes over each dram.

>> No.13896697

Maybe my brain has been warped by booze, but to me the potential additional flavor you can get from water doesn't make up for the wateriness of the dilution. I like the punchiness of liquor. Each to their own though.

>Whisky is distilled to around 70% alcohol by volume (vol-%) then diluted to about 40 vol-%, and often drunk after further slight dilution to enhance its taste. The taste of whisky is primarily associated with amphipathic molecules, such as guaiacol, but why and how dilution enhances the taste is not well understood. We carried out computer simulations of water-ethanol mixtures in the presence of guaiacol, providing atomistic details on the structure of the liquid mixture. We found that guaiacol is preferentially associated with ethanol, and, therefore, primarily found at the liquid-air interface in mixtures that contain up to 45 vol-% of ethanol. At ethanol concentrations of 59 vol-% or higher, guaiacol is increasingly surrounded by ethanol molecules and is driven to the bulk. This indicates that the taste of guaiacol in the whisky would be enhanced upon dilution prior to bottling. Our findings may apply to other flavour-giving amphipathic molecules and could contribute to optimising the production of spirits for desired tastes. Furthermore, it sheds light on the molecular structure of water-alcohol mixtures that contain small solutes, and reveals that interactions with the water may be negligible already at 89 vol-% of ethanol.

I recommend trying it both ways. Water sometimes helps to 'bloom' heavier whiskies (canadian ones seem to have a more syrupy mouthfeel) and expose new tasting notes. If I'm just having a drink though, I prefer it neat.

Soooo, like every fucking whiskey that exists? It’s already been diluted for taste, retard. When it’s not, it’s marketed as “barrel strength”. The end product, the liquid in the bottle is what the distillers want you to taste. You can add water, which in some cases may reveal notes you prefer over what the distiller prefers, but for other ones, it will make it worse.

Adding water to the whisky is just making the guaiacol float to the top. So, the first sips are more flavorful, the last sips are less flavorful and the average sip is less flavorful due to dilution.

keep drinking it, starting with mixing it with ginger ale or coke, and slowly increase your proportions. Try a handful and see what the differences are and what flavors you like.

Also I find most every drink to be more enjoyable on ice, I even like the super dilute end part with just a hint of whiskey, then sometimes I eat an ice cube as a palate cleanser.

Maybe if its 65% cask strength but Woodford is literally sub-46% and likely doesnt need much water if any at all.
Even then the guy you're replying to is obviously baiting for replies.

You should always at least try everything neat. Usually the distillers are spot on, so saying only drink neat isn't a bad recommendation.
People who drink neat don't add water. People may order neat and add water themselves, people can add coke themselves, it's not neat anymore.
>all the notes
Only oil soluble notes, since oil rises to the top when you add water. Only a single smokey note was studied. Not only don't you want to amplify that note in most whiskys (even Islays will become unbalanced), it ruins every sip except the first since that compound has already been consumed.

I find this meme particularly hilarious as whisky is ~60% water.
Adding spring water to whisky is a fun ritual, it reduces the burn a small amount. It does nothing to the flavour.

It does. There is an immediate encouragement to evaporate, which makes a huge difference compared to the dilution having occurred before bottling.

You'd have to be a supertaster to tell the difference. Even then the mineral content of the water would affect the taste more.

Some good whiskys will benefit a lot from a little splash of water to open up the flavours or whatever it's called.
I haven't personally come across one that benefited from chilling, though.
And I specify "good" because the really cheap and shitty ones will go down easier if they're cold. But then you're not drinking to enjoy the taste, are you?

Good whiskey can be enhanced by a few drops of water to suit your pallete.
(single malt)
Ice can smooth a whiskey which is good for drinking and feeling a buzz.
(Johnnie walker Black label)
Blends don't need ice, but it feels better and gets you drunk quicker.
(What you buy)
Ice and coke will make fire water drinkable.
(What you buy to get drunk) PS my favourite
You are better off with rum or gin if you are buying the cheap stuff, unless you like the burn so you feel like a cowboy.

In a bar order it straight, with water separately.

I think this is a money thing. People look at whisky, see it's expensive, buy a cheap bottle to mitigate the financial risk, and leave dissatisfied. I can give nice whisky to noobs and a lot of them will really enjoy it.
I fed my dad Dalwhinnie 15 the other day and he was ecstatic. That said, I have had him try better / more expensive bottles which he hasn't favoured. So you've also got to find the right bottle.

>high alcohol serves as an aesthetic
1) It’s expected with single malts/pots/barrels and accounted for (he spends most of the video talking about blends)
2) doesn’t numb your whole tongue and not fully
3) numbing reveals (or narrows) flavor to specific notes hence why some people don’t like the flavor of one whisky when with added water, or why some prefer the same batch with higher proof than with lower (for more on this subject, look up “miracle fruit”)
4) Obviously if the barrel strenght is 59+%, you’re diluting that, but 40-50% is completely manageable

>> No.13904001

okay
I like the alcoholic kick myself.
All I'm saying is I've drank loads of the stuff and sometimes diluting with water makes the most out of a bottle, especially if I'm sipping for a long session. The dram becomes wine, and the tongue isn't getting absolutely fucked.

If you've been drinking then you haven't got the best sense of taste and the extra intensity from the alcohol is more likely to help than hinder your sense of taste.

>If we're being honest with ourselves:

For me, anyone who puts whiskey over ice is not a malt mate. You can't control taste and smell. You can't allow for oxidation time. Most icefags have no idea what I'm saying. So no you're not having a malt moment. You're not a malt mate. And yes, you're a simple consumer not a discerning customer.
