Whiskey is great - it all depends on finding whiskeys that you like. As for getting drunk, I'm nearing 61 and can count the amount of times I've been drunk on one hand, and it was never blind drunk neither.Personally I think all this stuff about "whiskey" is a lot of rubbish. All that matters is alcohol.
Alcohol makes you drunk. And whether you get drunk from the alcohol in whisky, or vodka, or anything else - what's the importance?
