I had a couple of this on the rocks and without. Either chilled on ice or just the way it is, this whisky is my favorite. I preferably like to take a sip, whisk it in my mouth, breath out from the mouth to get all of the flavor, and follow it with a sip of water to give a settling after taste. Just an amazing start to finish. Note: don't chase it with water or drink cups of water. Your going to waste our even miss the smokey and sweet feeling flavor. This is a must have or experience.
