I really enjoy bourbon when the weather turns warm, but don't enjoy it too much in the winter. So seasons clearly play a part in my drinking preferences.
Furthermore, I think that whiskey tastes different when it's warm, For me it's not nearly as pleasurable as when temperatures are normal/neutral.

The whisky? The Ardbeg Very Young. I guess for me, the Islays (Ardbeg, Laphroaig, Lagavulin) are drams for all seasons.
Perhaps younger whiskies are more suited to the summer months? I don't know but it's an interesting question.
