Whiskey & ice: a relationship on the rocks?

The idea of a summer drink without ice is as perplexing as the wall of drinks at QuikTrip. Vanilla or Cherry flavor shot? What the heck is a Rooster Booster? QT itself has made it clear you’re supposed to use ice, offering two kinds for those staggering in from the heat.

But there might be one exception to the rule, and that, fellow drinkers, is Scotch whisky. Forget flavor shots — the dividing line among whiskey enthusiasts is one drawn in water.  Recently the Daily Dust highlighted the Island of Jura distillery’s attempt to answer the question of whether Scotch whisky should be drunk sans accompaniment or on the rocks with a splash of water.
