But it's a very good blog, full of links to other sites...

... and also handy sections on how to taste whisky, how whisky is made, and the history of whisky.

I shall add it to my bookmarks. Not. (as the young people say)

Worst of all is that he's shamelessly stealing contents from other sites and presenting it as his own......

As it is said in the header, this is a LINKGUIDE about single malt whisky.

I have forgotten the link to thewhiskyguide.com. I apologise. This is now corrected.

I am not pretending that the content is my own.

As to the question, my answer would be:

"Not often enough, or too often, depending how i feel the morning after."

Most evenings I have a dram or two...though last week I tried to begin a regime of "weekends only. "Trouble was, I'd already invited 'Arry over Tuesday night for a bite to eat and to sample a Laphroaig CS he gave me for my birthday. Of course, that dram led to the Ardbeg AT, and that to the Abunadh...and bang went my regime.

Ah well, there's always this week! Let's see if I can make it to friday without acknowledging the seductive winking of the Longrow CV I just fell in love with...

But I never drink in the daytime...unless being offered a sample of something fine by one of those generous chaps in the Soho whisky shops...

Thanks to keith at the vintage house for the large drop of Rum finished 'Laddie 15 SC last friday!!

It ranges...some weeks I'll have something at least 4 of the nights, and other weeks I may not even drink. It really varies!

2 to 3 times a week I have some drams, or should that be 'SOME' drams.

Then again I drink wine as well... hmmmm. 3 to 4 times... ?

I just know it can't be daily.... can it?

oh well...

Cheers.... :thumbsup:

Re: How often do you drink whisky?

Postby kyorke1 » Wed Jun 11, 2008 9:20 am

Same for me, two or three times a week is good for me. I usually have something mediocre mid week like some Yamazaki 12 year or a dram of Dalwhinnie 15 year and then like to save something like an Auchentoshan three wood or Laphroaig 15 year for Fridays and the weekend.

This is probably for another topic but I heard a rumour that the Auchentoshan three wood is being discontinued, any thoughts on this?

You guys sure don't pull any punches here! I think I am going to enjoy it here. :thumbsup:
Any-who.....usually 2 to three times a week I will set aside some quality time for some single malt.

The reason we don't like Planbanan is that all his posts are just plugs for his website, and his website is just plagiarized stuff from other people's websites.

We're actually quite a friendly bunch except towards liars, knaves and thieves. Welcome Green Hornet with your rather evocative name.

Welcome to the Forums Green Hornet!! Be sure to check out under Whisky Tastings, there is a sub-forum named Live Tastings. Every month there is an Live Online Forum Tasting held there. The whisky is voted on ahead of time, as well as the date. It's good fun, and a great chance to try and read about new things.

Welcome Green Hornet. Where's Kato? :mrgreen:

Recently, we've had a spate of people either pimping their websites, pimping their whisky, or rubbing it in that they have something "rare" that they want to trade for something rare (and better).

If you find someone too disagreeable, there is a foe function that you can use to block their posts. Have fun, don't be afraid to asks question, even just basic questions. Someone will either answer or point you in the right direction.

Go forth and enjoy yourself.

Thanks for the warm welcome!
Pretty much all the questions I had were answered in the fantastic FAQ section. This is a nice place you have here!
Looking forward to tipping a few with y'all!

GH,

June 21 at 7 PM BST we will be having a Live Tasting Event. Glenfiddich is the whisky and they are to have their brand ambassador join us. Look under "Whisky Tasting", there is a sub-forum for "Live Tastings". If you have any questions regarding their whisky, you can submit them as part of the forum.

If you can make it, you are quite welcome.

Yeah Nick pretty much explained above but I will explain too.

It isnt about the stealing concept why I called him scum. Moreover the thread creator spammed 4 different threads on the same day in different forums. The thread title makes it appear that its relevant, but it is just a cloak to advertise his blog. The thread title and the opening post do not go together. In conclusion this thread was created with no heart. That shouldn't be tolerated.

On the side note, welcome Green Hornet! :thumbsup:


Thanks, Yello to Mello(and Nick and Richard) , for your explanations! I did not know this, hence my post.From now, I certainly will not forget his name, nor his way of writing!

Welcome to this website/fora, Green Hornet. Looking forward to your posts :thumbsup:

I agree with Highlighting certain aspects of peoples motivations for being here but I would also encourage fellow members who do this not to use offensive/abusive language against such members. Whether it is merited or not I don't think it helps the forum and brings the tone down which is not what this forum is about. Lets try and keep it light hearted :thumbsup:


By the way I voted daily but in all fairness there should be a twice or trice weekly option also. I could have a week where I have a dram every day but equally I could have a week where I don't have any

This poll is clearly flawed. I would imagine that the vast majority of us drink somewhere between daily and weekly. I voted daily, which really is generally 4-5 nights a week.

Same thing here. I also cook pretty much every day. I do not, however, drink if I have to drive. Ever. When I drink in a restaurant then someone else drives me home (one of the perks of being married).
