I CAN'T beleive you guys are still talking about this "Whisky & Food Combinations" thing, have you no sense of taste.
Food and whisky go together like farts and flowers, Bush and Puton, like ice cream and pickles.....There is one simple reason why, which I don't really expect most people to understand, but, high alcohol content spirits have a numbing effect on the taste buds, it's that simple. If I've learned one thing in life it's - don't numb you taste buds before a meal, never mind during it. Want proof - trying having a dram of scotch before wine tasting....it's taste like water,I know - water has no taste, that's my point.
There is only one thing that goes with whiskey, and that's another whiskey. Have it after dinner.
But what you do with your life, such as it is, is your business, and I'll end in paraphrasing and old saying - "no one ever went broke under estimating the bad taste of the American public", I'd modify that to include all the public....cheers...
