A little worried

Postby tuddy24 » Mon Mar 29, 2010 1:13 am

Hi Everyone,

I'm a bit worried. For the last few days, every single malt or blend I've tasted doesn't seem right. I know it isn't my malts and blends because this just happened in the last 2 days. They all taste bitter, lacking in flavor, and well...just "off". I'm not sick, I feel OK. I haven't been drunk, or even buzzed for that matter, in years. I have been a bit stressed as I'm currently working on new investment endeavors and retirement planning(I'm 33 years old). Has anyone experienced this before?

-Pete

I would give some thought to your diet. Any significant changes in the past few weeks?

I agree with lockejn, diet can change your tastebuds. Also try taking a week or two break from whisky and then come back and see how your taste buds respond.

Stressed


Stress can have a huge impact on your palate for better or for worse.

Thanks for all your input, I taste buds are back to normal and I don't know why they were off to begin with. It might've been stress and diet, who knows! But thanks anyways.
