Well I couldn't help but voicing my opinion here...
To quote Thesh...
Some people say that it is better to take alcohol in excess every week or two, rather than to drink in moderation every day or two.
I recommend that you not listen to these people!! They are clearly not responsible
Not to mention that drinking alcohol in excess will
cause health problems, be it short term(Initially throwing up/Hangover) to long term(Liver Failure, etc...)
People, as long as we make sure our 'irresponsible' drinking tales/comments are told in jest and not to influence further improper behaviour, then I find no problem but to say to drink in excess is just bloody ridiculous!!
This attitude causes the current and future issues with alcoholism!!
Also..may I point out that this thread was to highlight the moderate consumption of older/matured whiskies will provide 'some' health benefits.
I don't want to sound like a stiff and a bore but we must be responsible were alcohol is concerned.
