imagesIf you don’t like the way your whiskey tastes, try going into another room.

Changing where you’re enjoying whiskey can enhance a person’s experience by up to 20%, an Oxford University study has found.

Researcher Charles Spence ran multi-sensory tests using Singleton Single Malt Scotch Whisky in a specially designed bar in London.

The 441 study participants were given the same whiskey, but in different rooms: A grassy room with nature sounds, a room with red fruit and chiming bells, and a room with wood panels and the sounds of crackling wood.
