You may think it’s manly to line up a bunch of shot glasses full of whiskey and start pounding them like the stuff’s about to go out of style. No, no, and once again, no. We are living in a golden age, where there are more brands to choose from than ever before and the good stuff is as amazing as whiskey’s ever gotten. A lot of people have put a lot of effort into what you’re drinking. Don’t dis their yeoman efforts—savor that amber goodness. Let it glide over your tongue and down your throat. Don’t worry, drink enough of it and you’ll get lit soon enough. And you’ll look like much less of a d-bag while doing so, too.
