But my question is what is everyones favorite whiskey and mixer combination.
Back before I could handle the full fledged 101 proof of wild turkey, I would mix it with coke, probably a 1 part WT to 2 parts coke sort of thing (no I would not use the whole can). It was exceptionally delicious, but probably not nearly as much as WT is by itself.
Another good mix is to take 2/3 whisky and 1/3 warmed maple syrup; this makes an excellent liqueur. You must warm the maple syrup in order for it to dissolve in the whisky.

Forty Creek is excellent by itself buy around 40-50% of the time I mix it with ginger ale if I have some around.
My rule for mixing is if the whisky costs less then $35-40 for a bottle I wont hesitate to mix. Otherwise I will mix if I really need to force a whisky down but that doesnt happen too often.
Oh I typically do not mix anything pricey, and just about never a SMS, or any single malt in that case.
But I'm just talking about when we choose to mix a whiskey what do the people on the board use for mixers?
Now I feel, if you are going to pour more than a dash of water or ice, then you are better off with a cheaper whisky. I can't imagine whisky with anything other than water or ice.
A long time before I used to have an occasional Jack Daniels with Coke. Now that thought is hardly exciting.
Thinking about this more, I realise if I get a better blend, as a gift usually, I take it with ice, and malts neat or with a touch of water.
Thats a routine thats just developed without much thought
Crown Royal and ginger ale is also a fantastic summer drink. I find that Crown has a flavour which stands out enough from the ginger ale without clashing at all.
