Anyway, it's mostly a point of discussion--I pay more attention to what people say than to the vote count.

What I don't understand is why water is added to any whisky (except in bottling hall of course). I know that it can release different aroma's but personally I don't see the point.

Some Cask Strengths I find slightly overpowering and will add literally just a few drops of water, which I find does open up the whisky, releasing flavours and aromas.
