Sure, I could just drink it like a man... but do some of you add distilled water to your drink?
Is there a formula to convert a 120 proof to 80 proof by adding distilled water?
Do you add anything?
Looking for education.
1. Extensive nosing of undiluted dram.
2. Depending on the malt in question, possibly take a small sip of it undiluted, but move it rapidly over the tongue before swallowing, so as not to anaesthetise the taste buds. Enjoy and assess the flavours.
3. Add a splash of water, say maybe a third of a dram. However, better to do this in small increments, so as not to over-dilute it in one hit. Don't get too bogged down in trying to measure "the exact" amount of water. Just add a splash until the sharpness and harshness of the high proof is reduced to your comfort level. Now enjoy the nose and flavours again.
4. Settle back and enjoy!
