What Type Of Whisky Drinker Are You?
Whisky with Mixer
Whisky connoisseurs may turn their nose up, but a whisky with a mixer can be a delicious combination. If you’re a whisky drinker who only drinks the spirit with a mixer, the likelihood is that you’re not too concerned with the depth of flavour and unique characteristics of the whisky. Rather you just enjoy a whisky and mixer for a night out, a night in or a date night – it’s as simple as that!
Whisky Drinker Newbie
If you’re a whisky drinker newbie, you’re likely to be keen to learn all there is to know about this fantastic spirit. You’re on a road to discovery and in for treat. It’s not going to be easy; you’ve probably tried a few different types that haven’t hit the spot yet but finding your favourite type of whisky is part of the fun. Whilst the smoky, peaty flavour of some whiskies may not appeal to you, a lighter, fruitier whisky might just be your preference (Try The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve for a tropical touch). As a whisky drinker newbie, you’re likely to be enthusiastic, inquisitive, and grateful for any long-time whisky drinkers to impart their wisdom.

Tip 2: Attend a Whisky Tasting
One of the best ways to learn more about whisky is to ask an expert. Attending or hosting a whisky tasting is a great (and fun) way to try lots of different whisky and get detailed explanations from an expert who will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. Make a day of it and invite your friends for an afternoon or evening enjoying a range of whiskies.
The one thing all of these whisky drinkers have in common is a great love for this exquisite spirit. So, whether you’ve been sipping on single malts for many years, or have only just begun exploring, pour yourself a dram or mix up a cocktail with The Glenlivet and raise a toast to the future of whisky.
