Pair Your Cheese With Scotch Whisky for a Unique Twist This Holiday Season

Skip the wine and head right to the single malt whisky.

It can be quite tricky to liven up entertaining when your guests calendars are packed this holiday season. From one party to the next, they will be served variation on the same hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and pairings while waiting on the a shared meal.

For a unique take on a classic pairing, skip the Italian white wines and pull out a bottle of scotch whisky instead. Just when you don’t expect it to, the deep citrusy notes of a premium bottle such as the Macallan Triple Cask Matured 15 Years Old works with wonders with the the strong but subtle salty and buttery flavours of a mellow blue cheese in a delicious contrast.

Opposites do attract!
