Would you like some cheese with that whiskey? Tickle your taste buds with these premium pairings. Like any good relationship, they only make each other better.
Paradiso Aged Gouda + Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey: Not as sweet as bourbon, this barley-based whiskey is aged in new charred oak barrels for a pleasant smokiness. Pair with the caramel and butterscotch flavors of aged gouda for a taste reminiscent of warm caramel corn fresh from the fair.
Brillat Savarin Triple Crème + Crown Royal Vanilla Whisky: The bold vanilla flavor in this lighter-style whisky plays well with the rich, sweet cream in this decadent triple crème. The delectable duo creates a fun pairing rather like an Italian cream soda with a thick head of whipped cream—dessert is served!
Taleggio + Bulleit Rye Whiskey: The dark fruits, mellow vanilla and long, smoky finish of this whiskey bring out the best in this washed rind cheese. Together they make Taleggio’s notes of mushroom, caramelized onion and browned butter strikingly similar to French onion soup.
Cave Aged Gruyere + Basil Hayden’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey: With aromas of baking spices and vanilla, this soft and balanced bourbon pairs amazingly with the robust flavors of gruyere. In combination, they form a sweet, rich cream sensation, both nutty and decadent, like caramelized crème brûlée.
