Whiskey Personality Analysis: What does your whiskey choice say about you?

By Nadya Khoja, Apr 06, 2015

The popularity of Whiskey has been on a steady increase over the past few years. People are finally beginning to realize the many benefits that there are to this “rye”, but tasteful family (pun intended). Aside from making unlikely strangers appear more attractive, and the fact that a shot of the liquid gold can nip your cold right in the bud, whiskey and knowledge of it, can also suggest a lot about a person’s status and personality.

Those who familiarize themselves with the spirit are often considered “sophisticated”, “charming”, “charismatic” and “successful”.  My personal opinion is that if you drink enough whiskey, you can make yourself believe that you possess all of the above-mentioned qualities, regardless of whether they are true or not. Needless to say, I am a fervent advocate of bourbon, rye and scotch.

Now, I’ve been drinking whiskey for over ONE year now (which is 7 in dog years), so I can confidently say that I am well-versed in proper whiskey etiquette, but nowhere near being classified as a Master connoisseur. What I DO know, however, is that you can easily trick people into THINKING that you’re a Master, based on the way you drink your whiskey.

With the infographic below, you can figure out your personality-type (and celebrity match) based on the way you take your bourbon, rye or scotch. Upon your sad realization of the truth,  you can then change the way you currently drink it so that people think more highly of you. For instance, if you’re drinking shots of scotch, chances are you’re already at rock bottom, so you can only improve from there! So please pour yourself a whiskey, change the channel to something about hunting or fishing or carpentry, and figure out how to drink the way you should!
