RE: Had my first "Measure of the Macallan" last night
I will second what Boomer said - it's all how YOU like it. "Cutting" with water is perfectly acceptable to reduce the "hotness" of a whisky and allow the drinker to concentrate on the nose and flavor of the spirit. Like Boomer, I prefer mine neat, feeling that "hotness" is part of the experience. Personal preference, what can I say. Although, Booker's Single Barrel Bourbon, at 126 proof, gets a splash of H2O on occasion.

A good single malt or bourbon will NEVER touch ice in my glass, but I have no problem with a Crown on the rocks or Jack and Coke.
It's destiny. As I've mentioned, I'm no fan of Laphroaig, having trouble getting past it's massive peatiness, at least to my palette. I went to see "Water for Elephants" today (a fine film), and wouldn't ya know it? The were drinking Laphroaig! I must re-visit.
