I was recently enjoying a dram of Glen Grant 16yr (I believe it was either a DT or G&M bottling)... beautifully sherried with a touch of peat. Anyhow, I added a few drops of water and the wonderful un-chillfiltered haze began to form. It really started to open up and give off toffee notes so I hit it with another couple drops (literally, like 2 drops of water). Bam. The delicious aromas and taste flattened out immediately. Lesson here? Not all whiskies can take the same amount of water, even at full cask strength (59.5% ABV in this instance). :(
