Just a note

"The light music of whisky falling into glasses made an agreeable interlude." - James Joyce

Without a doubt, whisky can and should  be paired up with well chosen foods to heighten the taste of your dram.  Spirited conversation must also be added to the mix as well as good friends.  

(Actually, a friend goes well with any whiskey.) 

 Well, we'd like to add one more item to the above list:  music.   

Granted everyone's tastes in music will vary, as will their tastes in whiskey.  That's why the list below is 100 percent, unsollicitedly and, unapologetically subjective.  But look at this way: you can have a spirited conversation about it over a dram with friends.
