I Love Scotch, Scotchy Scotchy Scotch
Now you will hear from everyone that drinks Scotch that there is only one way to drink it. That all depends on the speaker however. You will hear that you must drink it with ice, that ice is the devil, a splash of water, neat straight up, in a special glass, ect... It is true that there is only one way to drink, the way that YOU like to. Personally I like a single malt neat. With just a few months under my belt I have not been able to try as many varieties as I would like but so far I like Glenlivet 12 year (15 when my walet is feeling heavy).
I feel that Scotch is more of a social drink, when you just want to go out have a drink and bullshit instead of getting blasted. Of course you can get quite drunk on the Scotch just as easily, if not more so, as with beer. However you do tend to drink Scotch quite a bit slower than beer so that helps with the social aspect as well. Also anybody that has seen "Mad Men" will know that you just feel and seem damn classy with a glass of Scotch.
