Drink good whisky slowly and responsibly...

Stages of Whisky Consumption

 

Tailored classic 

Smoke and peat

Flavour magic 

Mellow and sweet

 

Sherry giant

All appeal

Dark in colour 

Pour to reveal

 

Perfect nose

A floral arrangement

Mouth presence

Like road pavement

 

Whisky tasting 

Quite a treat

Belly warming 

Feel the heat

 

Length persistent

Quite a pleasure

Now to pour

One more measure

 

Boring description

Can offend

Let’s drink the whisky 

To the end

 

Whisky consumed 

Become obtrusive

Scotch versus Irish

Get abusive

 

Whisky culture, 

Whisky snob

Glass selection, 

What a knob

 

Still standing 

Quite a feat

Drink too much

Can hardly speak

 

Many whiskies

Grace the palate

Partner threatening 

With a mallet

 

Brain function 

Slips a little

Mind and body 

Oh so brittle

 

Too many whiskies 

Heavy head

Consumed enough

Stay in bed

 

Revival needed

Following day

Ready next night 

More whisky play

 

Whisky drinkers 

Slow to learn

Night after night 

A whisky return

 

Lovely whiskies

Make us frenetic

We can’t help it

It must be genetic

 

Consider sobriety

Stop drinking today 

You must be joking

No bloody way

 

To be honest 

A silly rhyme

Serious work? 

Too much time
