The Finer Things in Life

If I can chill before drinking, I'm happy to stick to two cubes, otherwise it would be pretty tough. I do know exactly what you mean about the melting effect

Way I see it, if your ice is watering down your drink, you aren't drinking fast enough.

It looks like some places online will sell and deliver it to you (depending on your state laws) for a fair price. If you really enjoy it, you may want to check it out.

Hah! I admit, with some things (Scotch is a good example), I do drink pretty slowly.

Well, if it's good enough for a gentleman of his stature, surely I can get away with more than 2.

Thanks. If I can't find it locally, I might try something different from Macallan. They have a lot of good stuff in their lineup.

I enjoy a very fine Tequila that has been shaken and chilled, then poured into a snifter. Try it some time, it's as good as the finest single malt or even cognac. Some faves: Cabo Uno Reserva Aňejo, Don Julio Real Aňejo

Speaking of Scotch, we may be headed to Scotland and England this summer y'all can bet I'll be stopping by a distillery or three.

I like premium Tequila both ways, neat, as well as chilled into the snifter..... all depends on my mood. Hard to go wrong either way IMO.
