let's talk about spring whiskies, now that those of us on the correct side of the world are entering the warmer season. I enjoy Scapa neat, Glenlivet on the rocks (just in summer), Balvenie for rich leafy evenings.... what else is springy/summery?
The pear flavors in Scapa are perfect in the summer. Belvenie 10 FR is another great one. On a nice summer evening I like a touch of peat. My new bottle of Eleuthera will probably not make it trough the summer.
When it gets really warm I like bourbon with a little ice, generally something barrel proof so it doesn't get too watered down. When it gets really hot I switch to rum with ice, hunks of grapefruit or lime and a touch of tonic water.

Dramtastic - do you have these on the rocks also? I find that not to be an abdomination with livet at all. I liked macallan 12 on the rocks - I bet aberlour is nice too- expecially maybe aberlour abunadh, which is cask strength.
