Stev, it's apparent from your posting that you're a shill for Dewar's and I hope the mods here see fit to strike all your posts, which only number 4 so far, every single one pushing Dewar's.
Dewar's doesn't get much mention here because it's not that great of a whisky, but I still prefer mine straight, as do many others.
Bottom line to whether to add water or not is up to the drinker, and while better scotches don't need anything, some of the stronger ones present another personality all together.
