I usually pour about 50ml unless it is a bottle I won't be replacing easily, then it is about 25ml.

For me its random...It depends on the bottle (price and availability), the time I have to sit and enjoy the whisky...the companionship I'm with, and perhaps the mood I'm in...so I drink from 5cl drams to a whole bottle of 21 years old Glenfarglas with a good friend (whom became father that day).

cheers,

Jim

Normally alot smaller then the one I have right now.... but what was left in the bottle looked so lonely, that I felt it needed to get added to the glass.

28 standard drinks from a 700ml bottle??? Poppycock and rot! Ten glasses is what I pour from a bottle.

I've become quite adept at pouring a 25ml measure, so it's usually that. I try not to pour anything much larger if I can help it, exceptions being if there's only a tiny amount left in a bottle - then it all goes in - or if I just want a larger measure, which seems to happen from time to time...

Whatever the measure is when the spirit hits "The Ultimate Islay Malt" Line on the glass......

I'll pour a big slug on the odd day when I just feel like one dram but mostly I pour small so I can enjoy many different whiskies in one night without the after effects.
