The Perfect Marriage!

The Perfect Marriage!

From the beginning of time, the aristocrats from all around the world have paired scotch with food for a perfect dining experience. In today’s era, even a common man has the privilege to try the best scotch in the world while sitting within the comfort of his home. Not only can we pair a multitude of different food items with scotch, it is a tradition in many specialty restaurants today. 

#Lovescotch themed food tasting events can be a great idea for an outing with friends or to launch a new restaurant. 

Singleton is a malt scotch that is rich, smooth and light, and is a perfect combination for suave drinkers. It is perhaps one of the best tasting ‘single malt scotch’ in its class. As it has sweet and fruity notes, it is best paired with bitter dark chocolate. Not only will it make the chocolate taste better, it will actually elevate the experience to a whole new level.  It can also be paired with strong cheese such as Roquefort.

Taliskar scotch is a malt lover’s dream come true! With the power of chilli and white pepper notes that not only tantalise the drinkers taste buds, it also leaves a lingering coastal tang behind. It is best paired with cheese, dark chocolate, smoked salmon or bread as it brings out the pleasantness from all these.

Cardhu is a sweet and silky tasting single malt scotch which comes from one of the best located distilleries in Speyside, Scotland. It has a clean, crisp and sweet malt flavour; perfect for a warm country. It is hence the best-selling single malt whisky in Spain. It goes brilliantly with cheese, scotch eggs, rye chips, briny peanuts or maybe pretzel sticks. The saltiness in these snacks is mellowed down by the calmness of this scotch.

Lagavulin is smokey and extremely concentrated and has clear notes of iodine, sweet spices and vanilla. Its taste works brilliantly with tangy fruits such as apples and pears. This single malt scotch also works perfectly well with dark chocolate.
