Whisky should be drunk as god made it - don't drown or freeze it.

You may add a *drop* (and literally a drop) of water, just to
release the vapours, but if you notice a change in volume, you've
put in way too much.

Talisker is very nice - powerful and peppery. If you like
smoky malts, try a Clynelish. It's surprisingly smoky for
a mainland malt (it's from Brora on the north east coast).

Clynelish is also the signature flavour in Johnnie Walker Gold Label,
balancing the core sweetness of the Cardhu.
