Cheese, and more cheese. Not because i believe in the whisky-cheese pairing, i don't. But the fridge is full of cheese. Finished the Snøfrisk goat's cheese and I massacred the St Agur. Washed it down with Bladnoch 9yo.

I can't say that I've tried whisky and cheese (and remember it). I have some very good experience with some foods like chocolate and seafood. How do you feel about other types of pairings besides cheese?

I'm a barbarian and put little effort into such things. I eat when i'm hungry, and drink whisky when i'm thirsty. Occasionally the two collide. :smoke:

Roasted almonds or hazelnuts. Sometimes I light a cigar with my whisky, and sometimes I just enjoy it with ice.

Chicken & veg curry and Glenlivet 12yo. Not a wonderful combination, but I got some 'livet minis on the plane.

Cod and kale, with roasted cherry toms, onion, and olives. Served with a homemade turnip and red cabbage 'slaw and Miltonduff 14 CSE. They didn't go well together but i didn't let it bother me.

I'd've suggest a peated whisky. :P

Dinner? Steak

After? Chocolate. I prefer smooth milk chocolate as (I feel) it enhances the mellow flavors of the whisky. Some like bitter dark chocolate as sometimes it will make the whisky taste sweeter. To me dark chocolate makes the whisky taste bitter/muddier.

I like the milk chocolate with sherry influenced whiskies. However, the bitter (dark) chocolate works very well going with peat, especially Laphroaig.
