Re: Whisky and Food combinations
One of my first whiskies was the standard 12 yo Knockando which I liked pretty much at that time. Trying it again a few months later I did not find it to be as good as I had found it to be before ( meanwhile I had tried a few other whiskies). However, I then tried the Knockando again with chocolate ( 70% chocolate, bought the one they sell at the German supermarket Lidl, it's a NOT sweet chocolate, I tried it with Lindt chocolate of 70% cacao as well and found it to be too sweet, it did not fit well). First I took a small piece of chocolate into my mouth and chewed it only very few times in the front area of my mouth, the chocolate must not melt! Adding some Knockando to it, letting the whisky circulate in the pretty well opened chocolate and continuing to chew gave me the taste of pretty strong christmas spices mixed with the chocolate. So, if you have a Knockando opened, give it a try but remember: the chocolate must not be sweet!
