Drink it straight, temperature does not matter when you just take tiny sips to get the most out of its flavor.
With cola if you are alone and want to get drunk fast.

However you like it. Don't buy into pretension about the "proper" way.

Neat is fine. I will usually drink it straight, and add a couple drops of water to slightly dilute the alcohol burn and allow for more flavour to come through.

The "Japanese highball" is pretty good too. Its basically just two ounces of whisky in a chilled, ice filled tall glass, add 4 to 6 ounces or so of good soda water, then stir slowly.

If you want to mix it with juice or pop, you do you.

"Fine" whiskey is just a status symbol. All alcohol is poison, and it all tastes like poison. The only reason to drink it is because it makes you drunk, and anyone who pays more than bottom shelf price is getting jewed hard.

The best way to get into whisky , from my experience, is to drink something with å lot of peat. The unique taste usually gwts you interested enough to try more, and by then you're sold. Laphroaig 10 years is what i usually recommend if you're New.

To begin with: sipping it neat to learn the flavor profile and nature of the liquor. Do this for a glass worth or so.

To continue: If you enjoy it neat, keep on keepin' on. If you don't, grab your favorite mixer and do your thing man.

I disagree, starting with lots of peat is the best way to find the whisky for you. Dont like peat? You exclude a bunch, now you dont have to worry about those. Like peat? Well now you'be found a lot of whisky brands you like. It's the best way to show a newcommer what whisky has to offer! What would you recommend as a starting whisky then?

I do this with bourbon, I'll finally admit it on here. I can taste a difference between the brands also. Ill never buy expensive shit because Im not an alcoholic and I dont like it straight so it's a declining return on an investment to buy expensive meme shit. Scotch and cola is strange to me for some reason, I like light soda with scotch just fine tho. And Jack and coke is a badassed drink, but if you are a drunk and drink liqour straight, I can understand why it's not your favorite.

Big think.

That's like saying the best car to learn on is one with 800 horsepower and a roll cage.

I would have them try something on the lighter inexpensive side like Glenlivet or Glenfiddich as an absolute baseline to see if they even will enjoy scotch, then start to introduce more powerful, peat heavier whiskys from there.

I actually strongly disagree. It is common to recommend unpeated or weakly peated whiskies for beginners, but I think there's nothing wrong with showing people the deep end and allowing them to decide their own preferences. Laphroaig 10 was the third scotch I've ever tried, and it's what got me into them in general.

Peat doesn't need to be slowly introduced. If you like it, you'll like it. If you like a little, you'll like a little. If you don't like it, you don't.

American oak
That stuff is a plague on the alcoholic beverages industry. People only started using it because at the time it was cheaper, and then plebs got accustomed to the overpowering flavors. Like the way americans got used to the vomit taste in hersheys. Absolutely terrible.

As opposed to literally any other wood. French oak. Chestnut. Walnut.

American oak is for covering up faults in a cheap beverage. It is not something to boast about using unless marketing to plebeians.

I like to drink mine from a wide, squat glass so I can smell it to pick up more flavors. Some people like to use ice or whiskey stones to ease the burn, but that also mutes the flavor so I normally take mine straight. It's really up to personal preference, though.

It's to not excite the soda water and have it go flat. I suppose you could also make an argument that you bruise the alcohol which is some bullshit i've never subscribed to.

I tend to agree with this, but I do feel if you want to mix it / make a cocktail from it then you won't taste the subtle differences between a really nice whisky and a fairly average one, so you are as well mixing an average one and drinking the nice one neat.
I'd say pour a measure into a glass, take a sip, then add a little fresh water a few drops at a time until the burn goes away but you retain the flavour. Some people like ice, but I think it dulls the flavour compared to water, but by all means give it a go and see what you like.
