I have been suffering from delayed hangovers recently. I wake up feeling fine, but by 10 or 11 am, I am near death. The odd thing is that I stop drinking somewhat early, like 11 or midnight.

I have never noticed an off flavor from them either, my main worry is that they are not designed for boiling temps or food for that matter.
