Chicken Enchiladas with some Blanco and Reposado Tequila.

The Blanco (silver) went very well. The Reposado tasted slightly woody due to the spiciness of the enchiladas.

Spaghetti with meat sauce topped with parmesian and crushed red peppers. Balvenie DW with this. The red peppers bring a sourness and sweetness out from the Balvenie. Balvenie makes the red peppers go "woof".

Tyring the George Dickel with the spaghetti. The charcoal filtration really comes forward on this. Leaves a little of a low fire from the red peppers.

the crushed ice in the glass of golden goodness. Can't believe how many of you spoil the taste with food.

Whatever.

Early Times with pork shoulder. The Montreal steak seasoning makes the whisky go woof. But otherwise a good choice.

It was ok. Made the BMH a littel bit greener.

Now the McClelland's Lowland is very nice with the mallows.

Sig Clynelish with the mallows. Turns the peatiness into more of a charcoal. Clyne is better without this.

Glen Garioch 8, 1987 and the deathly mallows. Really makes this one perfumey.

I will note that the chocolate is much sweeterafter each of the last two whiskies.

Mac n Cheese with Ben Nevis 12 blend. Nope. Whisky is volatile. Although Mac n Cheese is good.

Pizza also. Four cheese pizza washed down with some Secret Stills Bowmore. I did not assess whether they complimented each other. I just drank and ate. :D

Pepperoni pizza and Black Eagle bourbon. Pizza cuts much of the sweet character bringing out some rough graininess.

I eat nothing at all... :smoke: sometimes I'll enjoy a good Fuente maduro ( Opus X ), with some of my favorite drams of Glenlivet, Dalmore, Glenmorangie, and Balvenie. On few occasions I'll break out some of my favorite blends and have them neat, just like I have my malts, neat. NO MORE...NO LESS... :shock: 8) :D :smoke: :thumbsup:

Grilled pork chops and Dalmore 12 (2009). Pork chops bring back some of the bourb character and mute some of the sherry character. Good but not great combo.

grilled onions and garlic with KSB 7 yo. Really provides a contrast as the onions/garlic drift towards sweet notes which brings the coarseness of this bourbon to the fore.

I was eating haggis yesterday at the fest. I really wanted to break out my flask of Talisker, but I was kinda on the go, and didn't have enough hands free.

Tacos with Ancient Age. The salt in the meat really brings out the spice in the bourbon. Usually this whiskey is soft.

Stuffed pork chops

Stuffing:

Anaheim pepper
sweet onion
garlic cloves

Samuel Grant Bourbon

I will say the pork chops are very tasty. The Bourbon very sweet. Rye comes out following a taste of the pork chops.

Grilled mangoes and OP 12. OP really brings out the sweet nature of the mango. My suggestion is sip the whisky then hit the mango.
