    Booze, Drugs, and Nightlife How do I make scotch not taste like death?

    So I have a bottle of Glenmorangie, Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, The Quinta Ruban, Perfected by the Sixteen Men of Tain- holy shit that's a long name- and I'm trying to figure out how to drink this apparently good scotch without wanting to light my tounge on fire.

    It's like, hidden under the burn I can taste, just almost, something that I know I like, but there's just the god awful burn of whisky/medicine/urine surrounding that taste and preventing me from enjoying it to the fullest.

    Now, what the fuck sort of mixed drinks can I do with this scotch in an effort to make it palletable?

    I can buy ingredients, but just so you know, here's what's in my fridge right now
    eggs
    fat free milk
    sour cream- ok, porbably not useful, but what do I know?
    orange juice
    lemon juice
    fruit punch gatorade- LoL
    apples
    bananas
    oranges
    extensive spice rack
    soy sauce
    worschteshire sauce
    teriyaki sauce
    vinegar
    olive oil
    lager
    merlot

    Alright, you superior drinkers, help me drink this bottle!

    A little bit of water can take a lot of the edge off Scotch without diluting the flavor too much. Try letting the ice melt for five or so minutes. You also want to take small sips - this is not PBR or your girlfriend's white wine spritzer. Once you get it past your teeth, suck a few bubbles though it to fill your sinuses with the flavor, then swallow it.

    Or, there is the chance you could both be a pussy and lacking in refinement, but I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt here.

    The sour cream AND the fruit punch. That should mask that pesky flavor of quality scotch.

    Ice and water not cutting it, huh? Try a good sour mixer, preferably something you mix in a blender, not pour out of a plastic bottle. Maybe an orange twist.

    As an alternative, you can freeze it ( leave it in the freezer for an hour or two ), and try it that way. Superchilled, it should bring more flavor forward, and delay the burn a bit.
