There are those who love to throw a whisky party, and then there are those who only drink when someone else pays for it. 

The world is full of such colourful characters, and we know them too. 

Who are the different types of whisky drinkers you know of? 

yes i would like to share really funny people I have come across.

1)Sad Drinkers - I have few friends when we drink with them share sad stories of whats going on in their life. Either some girl dumped him or cheated him, some crying over marriage & few always cribbing about their ongoing life.

2)Travel Drinkers - these are best people i like to meet , they share their travel journeys places they have traveled & things they did , a lifetime experience story.

3)Exaggerated Drinkers - these are the most funny people always fake about their exploration don’t even realized before uttering a word out of their mouth.

4)Happy Drinkers - Share good stories about their friends & family.

5)Work Drinkers - These are most common drinkers always cribbing about their work & bosses.

I quite like this platfotm, There is so much to learn about whisky

Different whiskeys come in different sized bottles in various designs. If you want the best-looking bottle, you have to be willing to drop a few stacks. Packaging is a useful and powerful part of a brand’s marketing strategy; it makes your product more attractive and eye catching. For many liquors, the bottles are so exquisitely designed that your guests admire it more than the drink itself. The design of a bottle increases the beauty of your grand party. While simplicity is awesome, but a beautiful whiskey bottle can really make a difference.

I have had some great experiences with different types of whiskey drinkers within my friend's circle. Some of them like to take their drink with soda, something which I prefer too. Others like it with cold beverages, and few of them like it with cold water only. Two of my friends only take neat pegs of whiskey without adding any other liquid. However, even though we all like our drinks differently, they are my real companions. Our choices may be different, but the way of drinking has never changed. My love to all my near and dear friends with a glass of whiskey. Cheers!

Yes, I would like to share some really funny people I have come across.

2) Travel Drinkers - These are the best kind of people I like to meet. They share their travel journeys, places they have traveled to, and things they did - all interesting lifetime experiences.

4)Happy Drinkers - They like to share good stories about their friends and family.

5) Work Drinkers - These are most common drinkers always cribbing about their work and evil bosses.

 

If you are a whiskey lover, you may have sat and drunk with different crowds. In my experience, I have come across some traits which people start to exhibit after drinking. Some people remain very calm and quiet and simply enjoy their drinks in a corner, without disturbing or needing the company of anyone else. There are some drinkers, a few of my friends belong to this category, who feel like they are the boss of everything and everybody after a few drinks, while in reality, they are not even sober enough to drive their own vehicles home. Then there are the melancholy drinkers who, after a few pegs, cannot help but recollect bad memories and more often than not, end up weeping! The most annoying lot is the one who, after drinking, lose their temper at the pettiest of things and get into fights.

Once you start enjoying the drink, there are so many kinds of whiskey drinkers you come across. Most of the time, I have a great experience drinking with my friends and family members in the armed forces. There are funny moments, however, when friends start crying over issues with wives or girlfriends. Then there are drinkers, mostly belonging to the armed forces, who like to share their experiences of war. There are some happy drinkers too, who never complain about anything in life. These are some common type of whiskey drinkers you may meet if you already haven't!

I have always wondered how whiskey bottles, in particular, have a unique shape to it, compared to the standard bottles beer comes in. Sometimes I couldn’t even differentiate
between a perfume bottle and a whiskey bottle. They came in various shapes and sizes. One of them is the square-shaped long bottle with a narrow mouth embossed with the name of the brand. Another is the round/ cylindrical small bottle which is available in various colours such as black, bright red and sometimes even green. Another is like a small genie bottle with a designer handle that seems to belong to the Arabian Nights era. A final one I can think of is the standard soda bottle shape that whiskey usually comes packed in.

Whisky drinkers are a special kind. You can get to spot them quite easily, and they stand out from the rest of the crowd. It is not a drink which youngsters prefer but rather liked by
middle aged men and slightly older men. Given the strong alcohol content, it requires a certain finesse to hold your drink. One type of whiskey drinker is the 'businessman.' They are always fully suited up and prefer whiskey. The other kind is the old aged people, who are very loyal to their favourite brands and stick to only that particular brand. Some of them don't even add any ice to it and enjoy it just the way it is. The third is the experimenting type who wants to try everything in life. They would add ice cubes or soda to the whiskey and just go on to enjoy their lives and forget the night. The final one is the guy who prefers a strong Cuban cigar and enjoys a sip of his whiskey on the rocks and probably gets to drink it atleast twice a week, inside his home.

Whisky drinkers also come in many formats as do the bottles, starting from neat to with coke. There are a lot of people who drink any and all types of whiskeys and some loyal to a single brand no matter what and no matter where. These types will drink other whiskeys just to compare and brag about the taste, smoothness, and aroma of their favorite brand!! Some people love to drink whiskey as a status symbol and keep the most expensive ones for a show at their home bar.

People tend to get obsessed with different types of whiskeys that they can find on the market. The starters keep trying different ones to get the perfect blend of the taste, and later they stick to one brand. I have seen that many of my friends are used to having Bourbon and Tennessee which is the U.S made and some like Canadian whiskey which is fermented. I have come across people who rate Jemison High due to its aroma, and few others go for the age of the whiskey which has a huge impact on the flavor.  Another important thing I noticed is the alcohol percentage in the whiskey that people have an eye for before they consume it which is mentioned on the label.

There are different types of whisky drinkers. One thing common among them all is that they love their whisky, but they make it their own. Some of them drink only single malt; some like it with ice, while others drink to collect the beautiful whisky bottles. But I remember someone who loves whisky but is only loyal to one brand. After tasting that once, he never thought about any other. When asked the reason, he replied, "It's not like I don't like the taste of some other brands but I liked the name and felt in love with it." Love at first sight? I don't know, but I found it very interesting.

I live in India and have many avid whiskey drinkers here. I have also personally encountered many pleasant whiskey lovers, who come in all shapes and sizes. However, the one who astonished me the most was a guy who has been in love with whiskey for more than forty years now! He says that he can drink whiskey on the rocks, with soda or with any other ingredient. You will be astonished to know the variety of mixtures that he has tried! All Indians here know GolGappas, which is a popular street food. Yes, you guessed it right! He has had it with those too!

There are diverse kinds of whiskeys out there, and just about as many different types of whiskey drinkers. It’s a varied culture, and the type of drinker you interact with can have a significant effect on your own the experience. Here are some types of drinkers according to me:

•    Some only drink single cask and single malt Scotch

•    Some only love drinks like Old Crow and Ancient Age

•    Some like to tell long-winded stories about certain bottles, drinks and speak about costliest bottle that they hardly drink

•    Internet freaks who just like to read about whiskey to tell stories but do not drink it

I belong to a such a group or fraternity or profession where everyone into drinking whiskey. I have also noticed that people who drink together, become closer friends. However everyone has a particular drinking habit. Like some will wait for a party to unleash the drinker within him. Some will spend thousands of bucks on throwing a booze party. Some drink only in their homes; in the comfort of their homes. I have seen them all. The only group of whiskey drinkers who annoy me are those who lose their control over the number of pegs and then drive back home.
 

Real men drink whiskey, real women cherish it and most of it…. The three basics of whiskey, drink, delay and dilute apply to everyone so that they can enjoy the richness of it. But not everyone believes in the same principles, I have friends who love to go with Whiskey on the rocks, helps them cherish the flavor for long. While others prefer it to be mixed with soft drinks and fizzy sodas …. Because some of them can’ t take it sharpness in the taste.

While most of the people (including me) are brand and blend loyalist, others love to experiment with their drinks. While some prefer to delay, others prefer to gulp down some quickly, While some prefer to have their drinks with snacks, others prefer not to confuse their taste buds.

While some like to drink in a glass, there is a whole bunch out there that enjoys nothing more than directly sipping from the bottle! Let me tell you this real funny story! I ‘ve a friend who loves drinking straight out of the bottle. To have an easy access to whisky at all times and to drink it without being shouted at by his mum, he keeps it in a bottle of apple juice! So every time we are over at his place, his parents find us with apple juice in our hands. Such simple and sweet men we are!

There are several types of whisky drinkers out there in this world.

While the Snob only drinks single cask malt scotch, the Anti-Snob people generally drink Old Crow and Ancient Age.

The Status Drinker class will have a huge collection (carton full) of whisky. Meanwhile, the Loyalists will only consume one brand such as Jameson.

The Mel Gibson buys only rare whisky when it is available and sells it on the Bourbon Exchange for a 300% profit margin.

The Cigar guy will never agree with your comments about the flavor or aroma. However, in reality, they will not be able to even smell properly.

Some of the other popular types of whisky drinkers are the Diet coke, Googler, Contrarian, Troll, or Blogger otherwise called as The Know It All.

The Heart Broken Romeo: Most these people have never had a girlfriend, but it is their one sided love that comes out with whisky.

 

Well well, couldn’t have asked for more; it’s officially time to decode the different types of whisky drinkers I have come across till date!

Seeing someone drink whisky is not an uncommon sight these days, thanks to the numerous corporate parties that serve alcohol at their free bar, which brings me to the first type- the ‘It’s Free Whiskey’ drinkers. No matter when, where and what, this group can never miss out on their share of free pegs!

Second are the Showy Snobs who also double up as the Know-It-Alls of the whisky world. The only whisky they haven’t tasted yet is probably locked up in an iron chest and rests 30,000 feet under the ocean. You name a whisky and they have it in their cabinet. These whisky wizards research, study and train themselves 24*7 to perfect their knowledge of anything whisky. Apparently, nobody else’s palate is as sophisticated as theirs to have completely tasted and understood the flavors of different whiskies. Period.

Only next to them are the humble self-proclaimed teetotalers who never drink whiskey, but when they do, it’s only with coke! I honestly am not a fan of this tribe. Please don’t ruin an absolutely perfect whisky by mixing it with coke!
 
Then we have the broken-hearted lover boy who can put Devdas to shame and their liver to waste. When you look at them, sitting there all alone with their glass in hand, it’s really hard to say if they are serious, sulking or just plain bored!

Quite contrary to them is ‘That Really Cheerful Guy At Work Turned Stand-Up Comedian’ who started out with pretty good jokes but has now entered the ‘I’ve lost all sense of decency and will now crack crude jokes that’ll make everyone uncomfortable’ zone. Most of his pals stop hanging out with him coz things just get real awkward when he’s around!

Finally, you’ve people like me who just want to sit down with their favorite whisky in hand and spend the night in comfortable company, all the while making the most of the moment by carefully scrutinizing the crowd around and passing secret smiles to the gang!

Thanks to my addiction to the pub culture, I’ve had the good fortune

(maybe sometimes not so good as well!) of meeting/seeing/accidently

bumping into etc. etc. a varied variety of whisky drinkers.

 

So here we go,

The One-Brand Guy

He is probably the most common kind of whisky drinker ever. This

person drinks whisky only if their choice of brand is available. The

number of brands that fall under their choice is inversely proportional to

the intensity of their loyalty! They say that they love whisky, but, for

them the word whisky means strictly their favorite brand; all others

probably don’t even count as alcohol for these peculiar fellows!

 

The Anything-Goes person

Just the opposite of the one above, these people don’t care what brand

it is as long as it is labeled as whisky.

The Know-It- All Snob

Well, probably your worst encounter at the pub! Trust me, these guys

will bore you to death with their never-ending knowledge of the

wonderful world of whisky.

The Status Guy

These guys only drink the most priced whisky on the menu. Period.

The Serious Person

Whisky is no laughing matter for this kind. It’s their motivation for some

serious mature deep conversations.

The Comedian

Whisky is definitely a laughing matter for these guys. Slapstick humor,

crude jokes, silly antics, and random babbling that they consider funny,

are their bearings.

The Heart-Broken Hero

A toast to all the Devdas out there!

That’s it guys

Well well, couldn’t have asked for more; it’s officially time to decode the

Talking about whiskey drinkers, I have met a dozen of them. And if you are a whiskey lover too, you must

have as well. It is a bit difficult to fit them into types. Every one has a different reaction after alcohol hits

their body. Some become happy-go- lucky, other weep in a corner, and yet others like to become sufferers

in the silence. Perhaps, a better way to classify them is by their taste, as to what drink they enjoy and

why. Based on this observation, whiskey drinkers can be classified as the dignified drinkers, the youthful

drinkers, the soft drinkers, the firm drinkers, people who like dry whiskey vs. others who like the sweet

taste. Then there are domineering and big people to the connoisseurs, who like things understated and

subtle. Drinkers who like it simple and austere taste to people who like a thicker mouthful and rich taste.

Some like to have their whiskey with only ice, other like to add a few drops of water while some others

 

can have it have mixing it with sodas and cold drinks to subside the strong taste of whiskey. There is no

defines way to have whiskey; whichever way you are able to enjoy your drink is the way for you. So

cheers!

The Loudmouth:

This annoying variety of drinkers is funny for the first few minutes, and just when people begin enjoying

this person’s rants, this person transforms into someone with a foot in mouth disease problem. They

literally go on a very loud verbal diarrhoea and annoy everyone around them before someone shuts

them up. Even the shutting up does not last long.

The Silent Observer:

This kind generally goes mum right after 2 drinks and sits in a corner, and after a while, you may not

even remember that this person even came with you. These people are good resources to keep around

 

though. They never drink enough so you can count on confirming all the details about the previous night

from them.

The Boxer:

Meet the Common Punjabi/Tamil kind. They are loud, extremely happy and extremely angry all in a few

seconds. You just need to look in their direction in a questioning way and they would pick up a fight with

you. It’s almost as if they go drinking in public places to exhibit their stupid sense of machismo.

Complete idiots, this breed of drinkers.

They say, always have the regular whisky with acquaintances to make them friends and then have

the finer whiskies with friends for life. The idea is basically sharing the pure joy of whisky with

someone and not just having it alone, even if sometimes that is the best thing to do.

In my journey of drinking with people, I have come across different kinds, some of which were

downright typical examples of what whisky does to people and others turned into different people

altogether.

Here is a brief introduction to a broad category of these people

The English Speaker: Odd as it may be, and this variety is found all across India, these people start

talking in English after their first sip.

The Heart Broken Romeo: Most these people have never had a girlfriend, but it is their one sided love

that comes out with whisky.

The Philosopher: No particular truth or substance in their philosophy, but these people suddenly stat

finding meaning in life after a couple of drinks

While some like to drink in a glass, there is a whole bunch out there that enjoys nothing

more than directly sipping from the bottle! Let me tell you this real funny story! I ‘ve a

friend who loves drinking straight out of the bottle. To have an easy access to whisky at

all times and to drink it without being shouted at by his mum, he keeps it in a bottle of

apple juice! So every time we are over at his place, his parents find us with apple juice

in our hands. Such simple and sweet men we are!
