For how long does a typical bottle of scotch or whiskey last you? Assuming you drink 1 bottle at a time instead of swapping between many?

Need more details...every day "drinking whiskey" or special bottle bought outside your pay grade for a special treat of event?

We've got one bottle that is close to 50 years old.....and a 1.75 liter of Crown that might last a couple of weeks - less if we have guests.

We hoard the good stuff and only bring it out for special occasions/when in the company of true appreciators. Garden variety stuff doesn't last as long.

Also, we swap between many.

Right now, there is Black Grouse (a peated variety of The Famous Grouse), Glen Ord, Highland Park, Johnnie Walker Blue, Jura Turas Mara, Bruichladdich, Dalmore, Penderyn, and I think a bottle of Woodford Reserve we got as a gift all in various stages of fullness in the cabinet. The Turas Mara, we're stingy with for sentimental reasons, got it on our honeymoon trip to Scotland.

A year. Of all of the booze in my house, it's probably the one I drink least often.

Into infinity unless someone else helps himself. I have an irrational idea that a well-ordered home has a stock of liquor. Sort of like furniture.

Spoiled brat is the scotch drinker in our house plus our son in law and both grandson inlaws, so we keep 2 types of scotch. One good kind, like JWalker or Glenlivet for company and a cheaper kind just for his weekend comsumption. I am guessing the cheap stuff lasts about 3 or 4 months, the good stuff longer. he isn't a huge drinker. I am almost totally a wine drinker. I am about to fix a martini but that is really unusual for me. During the summer the scotch lasts a little longe cause spoiled brat like vodka or gin and tonic.

It depends on whose in my house :-), I could easily keep a bottle for a year, I don't drink at home very often, I prefer going out to drink.

We switch between bottles, and usually have three or four bottles open at a time. Once a bottle is opened we try to make sure it gets finished off within 6-12 months. My wife and I probably go through a bottle every 6 weeks on our own, but with parties and having friends over we generally kill off two bottles a month. We'll probably go through 4 bottles of bourbon during the Derby this weekend.

Lately I've been buying a 1.75 of different bourbon each time I need one. I'd say it lasts me 2-4 weeks. I really only drink on weekends and often times my girlfriend partakes in some whiskey/sodas.
