I don't know about you but I keep finding myself converting monetary values into how many 'standard' bottles of malt I could buy with it. Using a conversion factor of about £25.
For example I'm off to watch a football match tomorrow (Derby-Sunderland if you're interested)
Ticket price £27 Rail fare £7 Prematch drinks/lunch £15 = £50
Whisky equivalence: 2 bottles of malt.
The inevitable question that then arises is would I enjoy the whisky more?
Sadly I'd have to say yes.
But I have to resist the urge to turn into a hermit surrounding by hundreds of bottles of whisky.
