    It's gross, if you wanna mix just use vodka.

    With Coke tbh.

    On a par with Southern Comfort and Lime although a totaly different taste sensation.

    It's nice enough mixed but it's not really got what it takes to drink on its own, I don't think. I'm not a fan of whiskey on its own though.

    I used to have it with coke but now can't drink it any way other than straight up with ice. If I had a time machine I'd go back and make fun of myself for ever mixing it with anything. If there's no ice than so be it.

    For christ's sake mix it. It's foul on its own. I have no idea how they can market it as a 'sipping whiskey'. Yech!

    I heard ice ruins the idea of whiskey, was in another thread.

    I didnt realise some brands of whiskey were distilled to be specifically mixed.

    i'm more of a Whiskey man myself.

    i prefer it to Whisky, but i usually call jack daniels "gnat ****"

    and i usually call Mixed Whisky Abominations.

    i was somewhere (i don't rightly remember) and there was a lovely bottle of Glenfiddich Caoran Reserve. someone asked for it with coke. they got Put Down. like a suffering animal.

    Don't mix it, it reduces the unblocking effect when you pour it down the sink.

    Haha, that's almost conceptual! It would explain why there are no Innuit distilleries though.

    I think that only really applies to premium whiskies though.

    I'm not sure I follow - no one has mispelt it.

    It's not supposed to be drunk at all.
