Why do people drink alcohol?
Well for me, my relationship with alcohol is probably quite an interesting one.
I almost never get drunk but I do drink perhaps twice to 3 times a week.
My drink of choice is a single malt Scottish whisky; right now I am working my way through a 10 year old Talisker storm which is an amazing bottle of
Whisky. I only drink though about one nip at a time and usually alone while reading a book or watching TV with my better half. I drink it because I
like it and because its just so dam good!
and when i am finished it i have a 21 year old Jura waiting for me
I like to savour every sip, I drink it neat, I can almost taste the Isle of Sky, it’s really quite amazing. I love everything about it, I even keep
the bottle and box that it comes in.
Other than that yes I do like a good beer, although my pint of choice is actually Stout, Guinness. Again an amazing drink the chemistry behind it is
unreal and once you find the perfect bar to pour it then you won’t forget it. A perfect Guinness is really quite the experience, I have visited the
distillery in Dublin (along with quite a few Scottish whisky distilleries) and I got that experience, the bar at the top of the distillery overlooks
the whole of Dublin and pours the perfect pint.
Guinness might a perfect pint but it’s nothing like getting a nip of a 50 year old highland park whisky, oh yes, I have had that pleasure it was
unreal and a memory I will cherish forever.
Some of the comments I have read on this thread appear to be very judgmental of those of us who drink, almost snobbish.
Well they just don’t know what they’re missing out on, sipping on their cranberry juice.
