In today's Style section of the Sunday Times (London), a columnist, Damian Barr, details wines with oysters. The article can be accessed here. In the opening paragraphs, he comments that spirits don't pair with oysters and particularly whiskey chemically reacts with oysters. In fact, he states, "Spirits do something truly evil to oysters in your stomach. Whisky is the worst and you deserve what you get if you pair them."
Has anyone heard of this before or know of any further details?

A very small sample size but years ago I had a few oysters with vodka out of the freezer with no ill effects as far as I recall.

Edit to add "I".

Yep, The Times shows only a portion of an article even though they have - and encourage use of - a "share" button. What is shared is no more than what you see in the link. Don't know what to do about that ....
