    I prefer Jameson or Bushmills, but whatevah floats your boat, lol.

    Jameson & cranberry juice is deeee-lish. I'd love to be sipping some Greek Mastika right now, but I'm all out & can't get it in the states. Pfftttt.

    The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.

    If you're drinking a decent malt, then adding ice may make a more refreshing drink, but it will actually dull the taste, adding a small amount of room temperature water will break down or unravel some of the flavours, however, it's an entirely personal thing.

    Try a taste treat yourself, taste the same malt straight up, with a SMALL amount of water then with ice - see what you think yourself!

    As for ice replacing the angels share - that share is actually spirit which evaporated through the casks ( about 2.5% per year ) during maturation, not water, so all it does is dilute the malt as well as dulling it.

    I love Jamesons and Bushmills with ice myself.
    A common mistake made when trying to come up with a totally foolproof design is to completely underestimate the innate ingenuity of fools.


    The last thing I want to do is hurt you but it's still there on my list of options, so are you coming quietly.........?
