When then just use mineral water (non-carbonated)

I find that plain water works well with Bourbon too Smile
otherwise it's like drinking gasoline!! Laughing

The Scotts recommend mineral water

Personally, I just sip it, not down it- Lagavulin is too expensive to gulp anyway!

I mean.. they distill the hjemmebrent to the point the stuff kinda comes out of the still looking like solid matter. Bad hjemmebrent is pretty much like nitroglycerin.
This is dense and ill tempered stuff.


THe real danger with hjemmebrent is that since it is damned cold here people tend to do this inhouse. And that is risky business.
When a house somewhere goes "Booooom" we all look at each other, nod and say.. "hjemmebrent".. while the pieces of the building are falling to the ground.
Anyways, this is Norway. It is supposed to be like this here.

I find a small amount of filtered tap water is the best thing to add to Whisky, especially this one : http://www.laphroaig.com/whiskies/cask_strength/awards.asp?expanded=cask_strength.awards

The best water to use is that from the melted snow from the roof of the distillery. snob

what is it with filtered tap water? (I'm not pointing at just you Andy btw Very Happy ). British tap water IMO is really excellent. Here in Birmingham it comes straight from the Welsh mountains- and you can taste that too- but all the muesli brigade here like to filter it. Why? Shocked Rolling Eyes

I went to St Petersburg n Russia a couple of years back, and the water smelt like blood as it was so high in metal deposits. The locals drink it, but the foreigners are told to stay off it. Confused

Personally I like my Malt neat. I think the poor Americans get the shit whiskey such as Ballentynes, Bells and Teachers. No wonder one has to mix that 'cos it's rough as @£$%!! Laughing

Lagavulin to me actually tastes 'sweet' to the palette. It's gorgeous stuff imo Very Happy

Right. Bed time. nitey nite!

'Muesli' is an affectionate version of 'Moseley' the area just up the road from here Smile Sorry I was thinking out aloud, but I suppose you could apply it to other people? Shocked Laughing (I eat muesli too btw Very Happy ), but people who are 'organically minded' seem paranoid about the water supply too! Laughing

Eh? where's the 'mad' emoticon gone?

Well if you don't filter water here (south coast) you get a pretty nasty taste, and a film of nastiness on top of the whiskey.

I have filter jugs and kettles everywhere, even thinking of getting one installed in the tap in the kitchen.

Ahh the south coast. Where on the south coast?

My home town of Lewes takes its water from the Downs. There's a lot of calcium carbonate in it. The water does have a slight bitter taste there, but it's perfectly drinkable (fwiw, it's nowhere as good as Brummie water though- but that's hardly surprising though!).

To be honest I couldn't taste the difference between straight out and filtered. You must not forget that the whole water filter boom started with a series of companies who worked like pyramid organisations (Incidentally, Scientology is a 'pyramid organisation'!). There was a lot of hype in the mid 1980's- one filter company in particular (I'm trying to remember the name- it had a little 'blue heart' symbol in the name), used some pretty clever marketing tactics which got a whole load of people into believing that we HAD to have water filters because there was some kind of 'evil' swimming in our water supply. The middle classes were suckers for this 'brainwashing' tactic too. (I'm middle class btw- my parents were/ are school and university teachers). I think many of us have now forgotten this.

The film of 'nastiness' (or scum as it's called), is probably just chalk deposits. 'Organic' in fact! Wink Laughing
