My earliest memory of drinking whisky was when I must have been somewhere around 12 years old. My parents used to run a Spar shop so they would often not be home until quite late and my dad always had a bottle of cheap blended whisky in the house (usually Bells or Spar's own blend) and I remember having some on numerous occasions, at first I just knocked it back in one as I thought that was the cool way to drink whisky but I found that too quick and easy so I used to just hold it my mouth as long as could. I can’t say at that time I was an instant fan but I didn’t dislike it either. I think my first bottle of whisky, or rather whiskey, was a bottle of Jack Daniels that I got as a present for my 18th birthday.
