how to drink whiskey

If you’re going to enter manhood, you’re definitely going to need to learn how to drink whiskey and when I say drink whiskey, I don’t mean take shots with a fruity chaser or dilute it in a Jack and a Coke with a cherry on top. I’m talking about getting the maximum flavor that the distiller intended for. I’m talking about sniffing it like a fine wine, sipping it, letting it sit there simmering on the back of your tongue and enjoying all the notes and the flavor that whiskey carries with it. Here are 4 videos to show you how to drink and enjoy whiskey properly

    First off I am 27 years old and of legal drinking age. Secondly, I am wanting to switch to whiskey as a casual drink but am unsure of how to take it. Usually I order a coke and rum but now I’m wanting to switch it up to whiskey and I’m not sure how to order it. Whiskey on the rocks? Jack and Coke? Please give me some ideas. Also, what is a good but not too expensive brand of whiskey that I can sip and enjoy at home?

    How ever much you can handel, then a cup of water which intensifies it. Or talk to a friend or even a phone hot line about what may be the problem. Alcohol is a escape for weak. Pleasing to your mind, destructive to your body and people around you.

    you could probably start by not drinking that much liquor.
    also another way would be to not try to drink cigarettes since you are supposed to smoke those. that might be why you were so sick.

    Actually there is no hard and fast rule for drinking whiskey but some points must be kept in mind so that the experience can be made enjoyable. It should be pointed out that if the general rule of thumb is not observed there is still no reason not to enjoy this wonderful spirit.

    where the blog author enables DISQUS, use that, you can later fix errors with its edit feature. But careful, you may catch it if if you alter meaning of your audi s4 turbo after people built a dialog on it.

    You can only do that with a high quality selection. The cheap stuff could take the paint off of your car!
