    It wasn’t till a few years I got into whiskey. Since both grand dads were involved in Whiskey, ( one a consumer of untaxed mountain whiskey and th other a distributor of it) it was just a matter of time I guess. I enjoy good whiskey, can identify bad cheap whiskey and enjoy it on the rocks and In cocktails.

    I enjoy several good bourbons or a certain Tennessee whiskey (not the bigger brand), and often pair it with a simple beer. I think I've averaged around half a fifth each month, which equates to about 3-4 portions a week, or a drink every other day.

    I don't do spirits since getting a little crazy on it back in my youth.
    I drink a lot and I drink fast when i'm out so it's safer to stick with beer.

    I used to drink scotch often, never got a hangover from it and I didn’t feel like I ate a loaf of bread like when I have a lotta beers. I got to where I could really put it away which was fine for a long time until it humbled me a few times like nothing ever has. Now I don’t have it often. I can drink it but I can’t gulp it like used to. Makes for some real good stories !

    When I have a drink Bourbon is my preference. I won’t drink it all, but I won’t waste it all either.

    When watching Deadwood I read up on a bit. Spirits were both necessary for safe hydration, and considerably weaker, in those days.

    Fast forward to Justified, they drink spirits, but not nearly as much.

    I don’t drink much alcohol. Don’t avoid it either. When I do, I prefer
    Whiskey.

    when I get a sixpack, i'll usually get two shots of jim beam to spice it up. that's about all the whiskey I drink. otherwise, I drink vodka. I love bourbon, but I can get wild on it.

    Must have great willpower given you appear to live in the heart of bourbon country.

    It takes me about a year to go through a bottle of single malt. But then I don't drink crap and good single malt isn't cheap so...

    ETA: ...and I don't drink any other spirits/liquor. Occasional wine, and don't really like beer. Just not a bourbon or vodka drinker...

    ...though I would truly like to sample a 25 year old Pappy Van Winkle. But at $25,000 per bottle, I'm gonna have to make some very generous friends.

    I enjoy single malt scotches, although I also enjoy a nice brandy or cognac on a cold winter night. How much do I drink? Not a heck of a lot...I will usually have one or two after a nice dinner on a Sunday evening while sitting on my patio watching the sun set. However, there may be a couple of times a year where I may "overdo" it and have more than I really should.

    I'm so done with the tasting. It is Maker's Mark or I'm not interested. I consider it a special after dinner treat along with a nice Portugal Port as an alternative.

    I used to drink bourbon, gin, scotch, and even went through periods of Bailey's Irish Creme, YaegerMeister and Tequila. For 23 years,this past August, not a drop. So I take it one day at a time....

    I don't drink liquor, just beer and my homemade mead (kinda like wine, but with honey being the main fermentable...not inexpensive to make, but tasty)
