Default How to drink Johnny Walker Blue

Just bought a bottle, and I know nothing (I mean NOTHING) about whiskey/scotch etc.
How should I drink it? One Ice cube, splash of water, straight?

I remember a thread a while ago where a bunch of you knew a thing or ten about this topic, so I'm counting on you.

Thanks a lot - Jags

from a gold goblet served by naked Scandinavian supermodels.

But seriously, you're supposed to drink scotch without ice. There actually was an entire article in the NY Times Magazine about this a few months ago.

I personally don't like scotch so I'd just mix it with some Coke.

mixing Coke with (what I'm pretty sure is) a 150+ dollar bottle of blended Scotch would make Diablo cry

It makes me sick just thinking about it. OP, 3 ice cubes at the most. If you don't drink much scotch, straight might be a bit tough.

This is correct, though Maybe red might have been a better start in terms of price. Scotch can be an acquired taste

That reminds me of an old MASH episode when Winchester got mad because someone called some expensive type of Cognac "hootch".

I don't like scotch, but when I'm drinking bourbon I'll put about 1 ice cube/ounce in. Making it colder smoothes it out some, as well as the obvious dilution. Doing the same thing with scotch seems pretty standard to me. FWIW, my dad is a huge scotch fan given his income (he can't buy a $100 bottle of scotch every month, but he can certainly appreciate it when he gets the chance) and he drinks it with ice.

Single Malt= Neat (no ice)
