Hi. I took a screenshot of what Dio was drinking. It's whiskey. But what does "age 12 years" mean? Was it ok to drink whiskey at 12 in the 1800s? Or does that mean something else? I don't drink, so I'm not familiar with alcohol. And I'm American, so I don't know the drinking ages of other countries. Anyway, if Dio hadn't become a vampire, would he have become an alcoholic like his father? Is alcoholism genetic?
