Just wondered what whiskies others drink during the warm summer weather like what we are having just now in Scotland (long may it last).

Do you perhaps add a bit of ice to your malt. Do turn to blended whisky and perhaps add a mixer to make it into a refreshing long drink. Perhaps you dont you turn to a refreshing cold beer and dont bother with whisky when it is so warm. Do you have a preference of which whisky to have during the warm weather.

I do like a beer when the weather is warm, as far as whisky is concerned i usually have a preference for sherried malts such as Macallan in warm weather and sometimes i would chill the bottle a little.

I certainly drink less whisky in the hot weather and tend not to drink as much Islay malts as i would in the winter. I do find a blended whisky such as Johnnie Walker Black label with a bit of ice very refreshing on a very warm evening although i dont tend to let the ice melt very much, it is more to chill the whisky rather than chill and dilute it.

There is nothing more refreshing than a cold beer on a hot summers day to cool you down but i still have my single malt in the evening just as much as i would in the cold weather. I store all my bottles in a cool dark cabinet so as they dont warm up too much this time of year.
