To me, however, the larger issue of enjoyment involves just how much water to infuse into the dram. Taking the Glenfarclas 105 straight toasts the olfactory and gustatory senses. So far, in a standard SM sniffing glass one-fourth full of the Glenfarclas, I've tried five drops of spring water and had decent but not overwhelming success. Of course, "taste" is very subjective, but I'm interested in hearing from others who have discovered an acceptable whisky to water ratio.
I tend to drink 105 neat and let it burn out the sensory system. Yeah I'm a philistine, I know!
You can try adding a teaspoon of water at a time and then tasting to see what is best for you. Whisky enjoyment really is subjective.
Don't forget to "nose" the dram as well, to see how the bouguet opens up with the water addition(s).
