Even something so seemingly mundane as warehouse placement can affect the flavor and character of a whiskey, whether that's bourbon, Scotch, or Irish. For that matter, warehousing can affect other aged spirits, as well—rum, brandy, tequila, etc. So this is just one concrete (pardon the pun) example of why blending is such an important part of whiskey production.

When is a Maple not a maple? When it's the Maple pizza at the Dogwood Café in Jamaica Plain. The house specialty brick oven pizzas at this JP mainstay pay homage to the nearby Arnold Arboretum (Magnolia, Redwood, Willow, etc.). While there were more than two or tree (sorry) options that bore serious consideration, the winning combination this night was the sausage and ricotta pairing featured on the Maple.
