What are your thoughts on Palate Fade, is it a real occurence or is it all just rubbish?
I had an experience two years ago that I've been mulling over in my mind but have been unable to come up with a definitive answer. I was on antibiotics for two weeks due to an infected tooth and during that time I stopped drinking, it sucked. (My dentist later told me, "Oh I know you, I gave you a prescription that would allow you to continue drinking"
In any case my first dram at the end of the two weeks was an OB Laphroaig 10 and it knocked my socks off it was so strong. I couldn't believe it; it was like a Laphroaig of old. However naturally after a few drams the effect disappeared.
Last year after my annual 30 days of not drinking (it's once again rapidly approaching, shudder) I made sure that my first dram was a Laphroaig 10 and .......nothing. It was like I had been drinking Laphroaig all month long.
In any case your thoughts on the subject would be appreciated.
