Wow, I am so new here glad I was able contribute anything worthwhile. That reminds me my glass is in the freezer waiting on some WTRB.

True, with the computer screen to the left of my fly tying desk and the liquor cabinet on the right I do admit to shifting in the chair a bit.

Always neat for the first pour, usually in a Glencairn or Neat glass. Sometimes adding a few drops of water to see what it does.
Occasionally an ice ball in a rocks glass. I've got a set of whiskey stones, but don't use them too often.
I'll work in the occasional Old-Fashioned or Manhattan.
If I'm just trying to quench a thirst, some bottom-shelf stuff in a cold glass of Simply Lemonade.
Neat almost exclusively. With a greater than 120 proof I might add a drop or two of water dependent on flavor profile. Very occasionally during the summer I might put a cold whiskey stone in the glass for a bit.
Always neat, sometimes with the uncut or bf's I'll add a few drops of water, about 1-1.5 oz. out of a glencairn, then rinse and start over again with something different.If I'm in for the long haul as in sculpting or going flatheading for the night, I'll do a large 16 oz.cup with about 2 oz. of lower shelf stuff,and fill the rest with water, that way I get my water intake at the same time, Whiskey flavored water!
Everyday my spirit seems to find its way to the bottom of a glass...... Don
