Grilled steak or lamb: The bold flavors in red meat stand up well to the complex notes in the whisky, while the tannins in the wine barrel finish complement the meaty richness.
Aged cheddar or blue cheese: The sharpness of these cheeses pairs well with the slight acidity in the whisky, and the fruity notes in the finish can help cut through the richness of the cheese.
Dark chocolate: The sweetness and bitterness of dark chocolate can balance out the rich flavors in the whisky, while the fruit notes in the finish can enhance the chocolate’s flavor.
