I concur. My wife and I have some whiskey every night before supper (last night RR Rye). I have found that numerous factors affect our appreciation of our drink. What did I have for lunch? What is my wife preparing for supper? What did I do this afternoon? What is the climate and how do I feel? Last night (winter) preceding BBQ ribs and beans, RR Rye did wonders for the pallet and the throat. On a hot summer night preceding a chefs salad or gazpacho, I think I'd rather have something less spicy, (caveat coming) however if I had been out cutting wood or bush hogging all day, it night fill the bill just right.
