When is your favourite time of the day to drink Whiskey?

Postby hotelcalifornia » Sun Feb 24, 2008 6:23 pm

All the options are very suitable. However before a meal is definitely my favourite time.

I usually prime the system with a couple of glasses before breakfast to manage through to lunch.

Just joking of course. I always drink after dinner and more usually after 1900/2000. I'm not comfortable drinking any alcoholic beverage before I've had something to eat.

In part this depends on the whisky and the food. Before, during and after are all good.

I like Laphroaig with seafood. A robust sherry cask after a meal is good. Maybe a lighter floral/fruity whisky before a meal.

I think that there should have been an 'all of the above' option. Would have made it easy..

I tend to like whisky 'after' food.

You just beat me to that suggestion Mikey. I like to drink whisky when I am awake (mostly).

It's those "when your asleep" moments that make whisky/life interesting. :P

I'd have to say my nose is at its best prior to eating lunch, it's unfortunate that I don't get the opportunity to make the most of it tho.

I'm usually in the mood after dinner, as a digestive. But if the mood craves whisky before dinner or in the afternoon or earlier, I usually don't hesitate.

Treacle you are so right. I've thought that about Dubois for a long time. I reckon he must start work about 5 am and then has a relax when he gets home. :)

Whisky time!

Dunno, usually 6pm on a Friday night collapsed over the bar (from exhaustion, not booze) after a long week at work.

After maybe a glass of wine with dinner, I may have a malt at 9pm onwards - sometimes a little earlier, sometimes 9:30pm.


You didn't mention which time zone you were using for your determination. :o It's after 9 PM in Tokyo. :P

Dubois I don't know what the reason is, but it gives me a whole lot of satisfaction to know that just when I am getting really pissed off at work in the afternoon, you are there listening to beautiful music and having a beautiful dram. It calms me down somehow.

Cheers :thumbsup:

Usually whisky is for me a reward after a day of work :P so, nite cap mostly *and not every night anyway*. Then, I can chill out and enjoy one or 2... or 3...
But still, a CS in a flask when we go fishing is a must 8)

I agree an all of the above option should have been included. If I had to choose only one...after a meal it would be.

That's it exactly. After 45 mins of chasing two monkeys around the house to get them to go to bed I generally need a few drams of the good stuff.

I am home from work around 4:15pm. Around 5:30pm is 'happy hour' at home. I pour myself a dram of whisky while the wife makes concoction. She may have wine or martini or some drink with bright color in it. Another dram during dinner and thats it.

On vacation, I drink anytime I want.

I've had whisky at most every time of day (except breakfast) and I would have to say that my favorite time - my very favorite time - is at the end of the day, after I've taken a shower and am ready to relax.

My absolute favorite time of day to drink whisky is around 10:00 or 11:00am, in a distillery visitors' center, preferably with horizontal rain outside. Even Bowmore tasted good in those conditions.
