When I drink it I use Evian, Mountain Valley or Fuji still water(the best we have in Texas, check the made or expiration date, on the bottle somewhere on the bottle) and icehouse ICE, as local water or my refrigirator is suspect. This is very important and if you pay big bucks for whisky outside of the area it is produced in you should take precautions to drink it in its best state.

Take a generous spoonful and just as it's slipping down your throat, chase it with a healthy mouthful of HP25 (Other premium drams are almost as good) The ice cream coats the throat and dulls the burning sensation of the whisky. The after effect is simply senstational. The warmth of the whisky, still slightly cooled by the ice cream, then spreads through your body, wraps its arms around you and whispers" I love you."
