Cool Ice or no?

What do you guys think about Ice?
Does it add flavor, take away flavor?
Boost smoke. Lessen Smoke?

I've noticed it's really difficult to get decent clouds when the base is cold.

hum. wonder if hot/warm water would have any effect. as unappealing as that sounds, it may be worth a try.

Cold water, and it will warm to room temp, maybe even hotter with the smoke coming down the stem. The whole purpose of water is cooling.

Imo, ice adds smoothness. I tried once without and wasn't a fan. I don't think its necessary but for me its how I smoke.

I've tried Ice, cold water, tap, room temp, warm, and hot water. Flavor has all been about the same. So it all depends on the temp you like in your mouth

Ice makes the smoke cooler so it does dull the flavor a little. But it thickens clouds.

I use ice sometimes, but not always.

Ice makes the smooth thicker, where as room temp. water would be more taste less could.
I put Ice for like mint, or just whenever I feel like it. But not usually. Should experiment more.

I always have ice in my base, i like the cooling feeling it gives the smoke and i feel like it makes it less harsh. Flavor wise i dont think is changes a thing, ive smoked warm and cold and flavor hasnt changed

Ice is nice for inhaling cool air along with the smoke. But it's tedious so most times I don't bother.
