Like woy, I did a lot of early research on this topic in my misbegotten youth.
My first thought was you needed a study to tell you this? Most drunks could tell you this in a heartbeat. The clearer the alcohol is, the less the hangover is.
However, in the quantities that I consumed it all in, it didn't really matter. I used to say "moderation is for monks, everything to excess, take big bites" but I have since learned the wisdom of moderation.
