I'm afraid I'm a bit of a snob [1] when it comes to whiskey - nothing 
but a splash of water in the best single malt available is all that will 
do. However, coconut water and rum, now that works well, is much 
cheaper, and I don't have to be snobbish about it ;-)

(incidentally, Nicola, I'm afraid I heard that saying in Trinidad - it 
refers to being totally parched in the sun with nothing to drink but 
Coconut Water, which can only be found in the green nuts, which are 40 
feet in the air, still on the palm trees.)


[1] For the non-English speakers you may need this, snob is not a common 
word, at least in the UK, anymore:
