I also like to cleanse the palate so to speak prior to partaking of a dram with some good chocolate minimum 85% cocoa content. I believe that it is full of antioxidants which apparently are good for you.

I beg to differ--it's the best time for a dram. The Normans stop in the middle of a multi-course meal for a spot of calvados--it's called "le trou Normand", or the Norman pause. It's reputed to dilate the stomach, making room for more food. A good belch is the signal to proceed. Whisky will do much the same, and at the end of a large meal, will provide a measure of relief.

Not to mention the boatload of garlic that populates my pasta sauce!
That's what a good bottle of Chianti is for. Capisca?
Lawrence wrote:Marvin, garlic is a real palate killer and I have to presume there was some garlic in your tomato sause. Some foods are worse than others and some whiskies stand up better. JW Black is the number one selling whisky in Thailand we're it's taken with their spicy food, it just works. (for example).
I have just been informed that JW Black is not the best selling whisky in Thailand so scratch that thought.
