Fake It 'Til You Make It: Whiskey Edition

Photographed by Eric Helgas.
Whether you love whiskey or simply can't it, trivia about the classic liquor can always come in handy. Try casually weaving these facts into a first date, or schooling your “whiskey aficionado” friends with your knowledge, and you’ll look like a total pro. Just be sure to mention the caramel and Christmas spice notes while you close your eyes take a slow sip from your rocks glass — you’ll really have everyone fooled.
