Whisky Trivia Quiz

Postby MacDeffe » Thu Mar 19, 2009 2:43 pm

Well

I love malt whisky (and beer) and I like trivia quizzez so when I finally found a nice tool to create some I made a few

It works thru facebook and the following link :

http://apps.facebook.com/flixster/quiz/top-quizzes


Just search for any of these 4 which I made

"The malt whisky quiz" (Not too hard)
"Islay and it's malts" (harder)
"Ales and beers of Scotland" (about beer)
"Whisky Quiz 3" (hardest)

I hope you enjoy them, I made them just for the fun of it. You need quite a bit of knowledge and interest im whisky thou, but I think most people coming here does :-)

Kind regards Steffen Bräuner (MacDeffe)

I took the first one that is not too hard you said and I did horrible. I guess I don't have that much knowledge just general. I couldn't even bring myself to try the harder ones. But thanks for the thought. I will have to try them at a later date when i have more knowledge.

73%, mostly on capacity, visitors and knowing which of the two Irish was located in the RoI. Fourth being who doesn't at least partially malt their own barley. Pretty much was able to narrow everything down to two answers on the four I missed.

Not nearly as well on Islay. Really didn't know much about the brewery and if I had visited particular distilleries I would have done better as well. 53%.

That 40% was pretty harsh on the difficult one. But the easy one made me feel much better.
