Some of my best drinking 'moments' have been with a fine malt in one hand and a fine cigar in the other in a dark and smokey pub, but I fear that that will soon come to an end when people who know how I should live my life better than I do will get there way!
As with others I do nearly all of my dramming at home. I don't have a pub with a decent malts list within walking distance and it definitely saves money to drink from bottles that I purchased.
Nevertheless, my ideal place would be a cozy neighborhood pub. I like the atmosphere of a friendly pub and I prefer to drink in a social environment, even if I choose to quietly dram by myself.
Good conversation, fine whisky and a furnace roaring away in the corner. Creating new shared memories to fondly recall in later years.

Couldn't agree more... (And this comes from one who loves a cigar once and a while.) But just the fact that you don't smell like a cigarett-butt the day after visiting a pub, makes it worth skipping a few havanas...
couldn't agree more. whisky is like "poetry for the palate."
On the othr hand, i love a dram whilst cooking.
...and I for one can't wait for the smoking ban, sorry!
Even though we reggae folk like the odd smoke(!) other people's collective smoke not only inhibits breathing, but plays havoc with the voice, if , like me , you "sing for your supper." I've actually taken to turning down gigs which i remember as especially smoky...

I did the Scottish moor thing last week!! up in the hills with 10cl of Scapa 14y/o. really cold and windy at 500m above sea level. But a crystal clear day over the islands and surrounding moutains. Well worth the walk. The dog 'flushed' six stags from behind a hillock, nice to see. And best of all when i get home, theres a roaring fire to sit by to warm up.
At home on my own with my feet up, some good music on the hifi and a good book in my hand.
With friends, wherever.
In an old non-smoky country pub.
Almost anywhere really...but with friends and in comfort count very highly!
So he can`t play it when i am around, or there will be hell to pay!!
He listens in way that I don`t ,he usually says to me listen to that guitar and to me it just doesen`t matter. I listen to the rythm of the music if it doesen`t make me want to move I don`t want to hear it.
I very very rarly drink whisky and listen to music.
But maybe I should get some ear pluggs so my husband can enjoy Primus and I can enjoy a whisky while he listens to primus, hmm, don`t think so
This aside though its normally at home in the leather arm chair with the dog at my feet
