    I took all of your recomendations and tried that whisky with a bit of water.
    It was... interesting? good, thats for sure. But i have no idea how to describe the taste. <-- Better than beer i guess.. but that doesnt get the flavor into words.

    Interesting. The water should open up the flavours and improve it but not so drastically as to change it completely. Not in a way comparable to beer, anyway.

    How much water did you add? When I said a splash, I actually meant that. Just a teaspoon or so. You can fill a tumbler, I guess; I believe that's quite popular in Japan (as is ice) but personally, I think it dilutes the whisky to the point of being pointless.

    Tonight I went full speed redneck with a few fingers of George Dickel #12 with just a splash of water. As a companion, I loaded cobasaurus rex with Granger too. A wonderful combination, I must say. This stuff is like a smoother version of Jim Beam, the flavors are a little more complex and it's a bit better as a sippin' whiskey. It was down in the mid fifties last night so clearly I needed some whiskey to stave off the winter chill The other cool thing about George Dickel is that it's actually sealed with a cork pretty retro and pretty cool

    Laphroaig Quarter Cask. Most impressed with it. I bought it on offer for 28 (not had it before). Typical Laphroaig heavy peat and smoke and TCP/antiseptic cream (yum) but with quite a distinct sweetness. Honey and peppercorns.

    The finish isn't crazy on the smoke either. Still quite intense flavours but actually fairly gentle in the scheme of things.

    I also have bottles of Talisker 10 year old and Dalwhinnie 15 year old, currently unopened.

    I had some of the standard Laphroaig this weekend. Incredibly different from the Highlands I've been drinking, but quite a bit more enjoyable than I remember it being the last time I tried it.

    I do like a good Islay whisky but I don't think they're the be all and end all of Scotch whiskies. I like the peat and smoke, obviously, but I think sometimes it can be all a bit to intense and overbearing and often something with a bit more subtlety is called for.

    Although it could be applied to any whisky, I think money is the key to an Islay—an older, more expensive expression will likely have much more complex and subtle flavours without sacrificing the depth and intensity that we love, rather than just acting as a punch in the face after your assailant has been digging around in your back garden (no puns or euphemism or innuendo intended here (feel free to add some if you like)).

    Still, a fine dram nonetheless!

    It was in original condition, faded red, well-worn, but nice.
    This was and still is my favorite combination; beautiful, original, and worn.
