We’re in the season of Lent and Passover. For some, this means no meat on Fridays. If fish is a popular dish in your house during this time, you may want to try Basil Hayden’s Bourbon. This whiskey has a high rye content which pairs well with the fat from smoked salmon.
Woodford Reserve is a full, rich whiskey. It has smooth flavors of all spice, cinnamon and vanilla, with undertones of oak and nut. These flavors make this whiskey pair best with salty meats like a corned beef brisket or a smoked holiday ham.
Dalwhinnie is a light scotch whiskey with a crisp, smooth finish. You can pair this drink with the soft cheeses. Break this bottle out for a pre dinner snack of drinks and cheese. You’ll taste vanilla and honey flavors that’ll mellow out some of the saltyness from the cheese.
