    Question other FOOD pairings of interest?

    being a 99.9% NEAT drinker of bourbon and other kin spirits, i haven't done much EATING with my pours...but this being the holidays and there are all kinds of foods and goodies around, i stumbled upon a probably obvious, but eye-opening combo:

    white chocolate and WT Rye...also
    dark chocolate and OGD BIB...seems the unique aspects of these chocolates combined with the rye spiciness of these two spirits really brought OUT alot of interesting, amalgamations!

    i don't expect to have a piece of chocolate every time i have a pour, but i will be experimenting from time to time.

    what would pair well with the sweeter wheaters like WLW SReserve?
    HUP!

    Maybe Dried Apricots? I like to pair mine with my Reidel Chrystal or a nice heavy rocks glass...NO Rocks.

    I'm particularly fond of Orville Redenbacher's Caramel microwave popcorn paired with any wheater but especially ORVW 10yr. 107

    Just about any bourbon paired with peanut or cashew brittle

    Just about any scotch paired with shrimp scampi or for that matter any garlicky seafood dish.

    Dalmore 12 and smokes almonds.

    plain Chex Mix and any WT product.

    I've never had a bourbon that didn't go well with my jerky! Better brands include Wild Bills, Buffalo Bills, Bronco Billy's (noticing a pattern? ), and the stuff I can buy loose if I feel like taking the drive to the market (no brand is listed, it's probably made fresh in Lancaster County by the Amish).

    While most folks would be inclined to go with beer, I find that a nice bourbon on the rocks works very well with most things smoked; ribs, pork, sausage, brisket, ham, chicken; for some reason though not so much smoked turkey.

    I agree with the pairing of smoked meats with bourbon. Very complimentary flavors.

    not exactly a food and drink pairing, but in baking cakes or cookies i enjoy using whisky or brandy as one of the central flavours for plain or nut flavoured sweets

    1792 Ridgemont Reserve and corn chips go together like Blanton's and peppery side dishes. BB
