1. Whiskey is a laid back drink. It’s not a beverage for high-maintenance people, it’s not showy — frankly, it doesn’t even look that good. But that’s why whiskey drinkers tend to be happier people, they choose what they like because they like it, not because of how it looks or appears to others. You will never meet a whiskey drinker who can be described as “fussy.”
2. They’re not afraid of a little pain. Good whiskey can burn going down, but it’s definitely worth it. Anything worth doing is worth doing with a little intensity and whiskey drinkers know that it’s better to be too hot or too cold than totally forgettable.
