There’s never a wrong time for whisky! Especially, if your getting over the flu, it’s as good as a Tami Flu..Actually not but I’d like to imagine it that way. On the way up the steps my friend drops the bottle of Tin Cup on concrete and it didn’t break, or even crack!! I wouldn’t advise you to try dropping the bottle yourself, but it was smooth. It may have even cleared my sinuses just a little!
