Some components in whisky solidify below 46% alcohol
some people in marketing invented chillfiltering to filter those out, which isn't good as it might be the tasty stuff
I'll be darned. I looked it up and sure enough, you're right. Keeping the dram looking like sewer water is supposed to be a good thing. Hummm... I think I'll take chillfiltering because it's hard to appreciate your drink when you expect a fish to come jumping out. Or, maybe I should just get a dark glass! Thanks for replying. Cheers

And here we all are trying to get them to stop....

No, I didn't toss it. I drank it and it was fine. It just looked odd.
It's up to you of course but you'll miss out on some fantastic whiskies if you're constantly avoiding these sorts of issues.

The tap water was lukewarm. The bottled water was chilled. Now, in the interest of science, I need to replicate my experience. Twice with chilled tap and bottled water, and twice with room temperature tap and bottled water. All in the name of discovery, of course. I'll make my report after I recover my brain.
