Why does a scotch go down best after a long hard day?

I dont know if it is just me but I find a glass of scotch most enjoyable ( by a factor of 3 to 4 times) after a long hard day at work or anything else that has kept me mentally drained for a period of time. If I have a glass when I am refreshed or at a psychological equilibrium, it is not as pleasing.

Stimulates your reward center - "I worked so hard, I deserve this. I'm a good person. This is going to be so good"

Let's call your equilibrium level 0. This means you're neither happy nor sad. You're just existing.

After a long hard day you're at level -5. You're tired, angry, and maybe a little stressed.

Drinking scotch gets you to level 10. Every time. Obviously this is more of a change when you're at level -5 then when you're at a 0.

i prefer a whisky at the end of a long day because its a lot easier to stomach than a pint of ale

why is it better than other spirits? because it doesnt taste like paint thinner like most other spirits.
