I figured it'd probably last me 3 weeks to 1 month, so I went with 3 weeks. Enjoy Ganga! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I quite enjoyed Chivas 12 when I last tried it and I'm guessing you will too Ganga, so I'm guessing three weeks :D

What did you think of it? I'm sure that will be the greatest influence on the speed at which the level goes down...

Reading the former posts and reading about your drinking habits, I guess two weeks, Ganga :lol:

It's a lovely blended whisky.

So, don't disappoint me, Ganga :wink:

I read this earlier today and believe it could last no more than 2 weeks at most using 4 drams as yardstick with maybe a couple of nights off.
Anyway enjoy it.

As dull as Chivas 12yo is, it is easy drinking. Me and a couple of mates demolished a bottle in an evening once (it was a well meant but rather unappreciated gift).

I actually prefer it to a lot of blends becasue it is so unoffensive. Would never ever ever buy a bottle though.

I think that Les is being far too generous with giving two weeks. I don't give much hope that the bottle will hold out until this weekend!

Hi Rat, I'm sorry to say, but I do hear you not enough. Btw, what you're saying here, I fully agree with you.

I_S:
Yeah, sorry. I took a bit of a sabbatical from whisky this summer. I'm back for the nonce but it's pretty busy in the outside world and I've not got the free time I once had. Family and fraternal responsibilities are taking a front seat to dramming.

I suspect that Ganga has finished the bottle already and is not ready to admit it yet. Too bad they don't sell two litre jugs, eh?

OMG this was my 2400th post. How terribly mundane!

Is my name being mis applied to some one. I didn't say anything.

Also remember Ganga did say it a Litre bottle. It may take longer or it may not.

C,mon Ganga, don't fail me now, it's almost the weekend and you've still got 1/2 a bottle to go! Remember and apply the chorus from "The Student Prince".

I like the Chivas 18 better than the 12. The 18 would go away much faster in this house than would the 12. It's not all that interesting of a blend, and I think that equivalent blends in the range can be had for the same cost or lower, while being of superior quality. I will admit that it's easy drinking though--and yes, there is a bottle here. :iwbrnt:

Go Ganga Go!

I take it the wildfires didn't drive you from your homes for too long? Hopefully they are under control or out by now as I hate to think of all that lovely whisky collection going up in a high proof orange fireball.

The Chivas is below the 1/2 way and it's been two weeks so those who picked 1 or 2 as SOL. I suspect you need a month to finish it. So that's what I should've voted for.

I had proposed a month, not taking into account your propensity for self inflicted punishment. 3 weeks for a litre of Chivas ... not to shabby.

On a side note, what else did you finish off in the same time period?
