There are several ways to combine whiskey and desserts for food pairing. The natural caramel flavor of a high-rye bourbon is a good combination for a pumpkin pie. It is a creamy, sweet, and spiced dessert, containing lower calories than any other pie.

Cheesecakes have toffee, vanilla, and butterscotch hints that complement a bourbon. Irish whiskey combines well with bread and butter pudding. You can also use whiskey to make the pudding.

Sushi combines the flavors of seaweed, soy sauce, vinegary rice, ginger, and wasabi, making it the best food to complement a complicated drink like whisky. Japanese whisky is the top choice to partner with sushi because it can bring out its background and subtle notes.

But if you can not have a bottle of Japanese whisky, you can also try the Johnnie Walker Blue Label. It has the right touch of sweetness and spiciness to balance with sushi.

The lowered amount of water in dried fruits results in more complexity than in fresh fruits. Dried figs and dates match most American whiskeys’ licorice, cinnamon, and spiced caramel flavors. Some dried fruits impart bright candied orange or pineapple tones and a strong floral aroma to whiskeys.

On the other hand, strong whiskies work well with sweeter nuts, while sweeter whiskies are good with bitter nuts. Whiskies with strong smoky flavors are better with heavily roasted nuts.

Pairing whisky and cheese works well because the fat in the cheese can cover up your palate from the heat while you’re drinking whisky. 

Whisky and cheese is a classic pairing that offers different flavorful combinations. We suggest that you pair goat cheese with light fragrant whiskies, while a hard blue cheese goes well with full-bodied malt whisky. In addition, the lasting flavors of creamy cheeses and semi-hard cheeses can bring out the subtle tastes of medium-bodied whiskies.

An outdoor dinner party with grilled steaks and whisky bottles seemed the perfect way to spend the weekend. You can prepare medium-bodied rich whiskies because their rich caramel notes work well with a leaner steak.

However, strong peaty whiskies are more popular to pair with the red meat’s flavorful cuts. These whiskies have earthy and smoky notes, mirroring the smokiness of grilled beef. But you can still experiment with your steak’s flavors and fat contents to match your palate.

Instead of milk chocolates, try pairing whisky with plain dark chocolates. It further enhances the bitter dark chocolate notes of strong whiskies. The dark orange-flavored chocolate is also a good choice because the orange flavor complements the citrus notes of a Scotch whisky.

But if you prefer sweet sugary chocolate instead of dark bars, we suggest that you try pairing it with a bourbon or rye whiskey. Salted hazelnut chocolates also add a sweet, nutty taste to Single Malt Scotch.
