Thanks for posting your query.
The whisky contains ethyl alcohol in concentrated form.
The alcohol if used in lower than moderate amounts that is two to three time per week, about 50-60ml in dilutions may benefit by reducing the bad cholesterol that is LDL cholesterol in the blood.
But the relationship is not linear and those having more intake have increased incidence.
So do not expect much from your whisky. Adopt a healthy life style and reduce fat and smoking and include regular exercises in the daily schedule.
