Can you even drink aged Scotch or other aged liquors? I've really been missing margaritas.
>My immediate answer would be yes. The manufacturer does not include aged liquors (except Sherry and Chianti) in the list of foods to avoid. Nor do any of seven or so recent studies of MAOI diets published within the past several years, of which I have copies. (There's a lot of controvery, by the way, about whether Sherry and Chianti even need to be restricted.) The only type of alcohol that shows up on the "to be avoided" list in any of these studies are draft/tap beers, and other beer or wine above certain daily quantities (the conservative consensus is an allowance of no more than four ounces of wine per day (no restriction on red) and no more than 2 bottled or canned beers per day; however, these are way conservative in that the studies show you'd pass out before consuming a tyramine level significant enough to have any effect.
A couple of suggestions: post the question about aged liquors on the Yahoo group on MAOIs (Go to Yahoo groups, then search.) You might also wish to contact Kenneth Shulman at the Dept. of Psychiatry, Sunnybrook Health Science Center, 2075 Bayview Ave, Toronto Canada M4N 3M5.
He probably has studied this issue more than anyone and responds to written requests.
