I used to be able to taste the notes of different flavours in distilled spirits. I know it looks like pretentious snobbery and fops will often critique spirits with phoney descriptors in an attempt to appear sophisticated. I could do it a little bit but I didn’t get snobbish about it. I bought a few books on scotch and did a deep dive into the subject and became quite well read on the subject. It’s a fascinating topic.
Now I don’t drink at all. I dunno what it is. I can’t get drunk anymore either… I just get sick or hung over. It used to be that all I needed was a campfire and a bottle and I was king of the world.
I haven’t had a drink this year and I don’t miss it at all. What changed?
