Beards, but that's about it.

My go to varieties of Scotch are Laphraoig, Glenfiddich and Balvenie, depending on my mood.

Yet, I've also developed a taste for Bourbon.

Not sure if they're linked, but since I started homebrewing I've also moved towards eating a lot healthier.

I've learned to drink a little hard liquor without dying. I can appreciate a bourbon somewhat, probably from some of the bourbon stouts I've tried.

My experience with food and cooking has taken a big bump over the years and there is plenty more to try before I die.

I have grown to like Whiskey a lot more. I also have really gotten into Charcuterie.

As I started getting more experimental with drinking craft/HB beer, I sort of simultaneously developed a taste for coffee as well as stouts and other "roasty" beers. I couldn't stand either for the longest time, then all of a sudden, both started tasting good. Of course, around the same time, I was also working a stressful job with a long commute, which probably had an influence on both.

BTW, I cannot recommend the Bulleit Rye enough. It is excellent.
I've experienced this too. I was an adventurous eater before, but now I can find myself picking out individual spices and other flavors in foods.

+1 on Bulleit Rye, and bourbon in general.

Haven't really changed my tastes too much outside of normal evolution. I"ve liked scotch for 4 years. Wine I'm working on but I just prefer beer anyway so I typically stick to beer.

It's sharpened my palate in general towards both food and drink. I'm not a big wine or liquor guy, but I found myself looking for flavors in the premium tequilas and/or wines that my family like to drink--automatically. Same thing with foods. Whether I'm making an omelette for my girlfriend, or making fresh hummus, and ESPECIALLY with fresh produce. It's been great, but also sad because I have little patience for anything that is not fresh, in season, or well made!

Bread and Sauerkraut. Just made my first sourdough loaf last night! I eat sauerkraut by the forkful now. I think I like making things that are a process like beer/bread/sauerkraut.

One of my favorites is a panini with Italian bread, quality roast beef, Dijon and sauerkraut. It is wonderful! And not to overlook the fact that it causes my daughter to really make a funny face.

I've also started liking stronger cheeses--blue cheese, etc. I've come to appreciate not only the flavors but the natural processes that go into making a quality product.

Beer has also started to change my wife's tastes. She used to prefer BMC (which she'd drink with a straw) and very sweet white wines. She really loves quality beer and is starting to appreciate reds--still turns her nose up at the whiskey though, unless mixed with coke. One time I had a nice bottle of Glenfiddich that was disappearing too fast. I found out she was adding it to coke. Let's just say we had a nice long talk.
