Yeah, my girlfriend enjoys an occasional glass with me, but for the most part I think she finds my interest in whisky more amusing than anything else. It's good though, because I think she keeps me down to Earth: if I start to geek out too much, she'll tell me to get over my snobby self.
Actually, come to think of it, she's responsible for my interest in whisky...a few years back she got herself a bottle of Oban 14. After taking a glass or two, she left it untouched on top of the fridge for months. Eventually, I tried some and liked it. Before long, the bottle was gone and I was off in search of another dram. That and a couple pleasant experiences with Bowmore 12 (which tipped me off to the wonderful world of Islay malts) set me off on the path of whisky geekery.
