I find that only mild whiskies, like lowlands and lighter highlands, go WITH dinner. In general I find whiskies make better apertifs and after-dinner drinks.

When I am drinking and eating, I find salads and fish go best with whisky. Cheeses too.

Peaty and smoky whiskies such as Talisker and Ardbeg go well to wash down a steak dinner.

I sometimes have a dram when I'm not driving to a bar lunch rendezvous but I'm not that discerning about which whisky goes with which food.
