Whisky Pairing 2: Haggis & Cracked Black Pepper
Last updated: 10.30am, Friday 6th May 2016
For our 2nd Whisky pairing we’re testing our renowned Haggis & Cracked Black Pepper Crisps…
This pairing was written by Martine Nouet, Editor of Whisky Magazine France and contributor to Whisky Magazine UK.
'Quite an original flavour for potato crisps. The haggis flavour, paired with the spicy pepper is well recreated. These crisps need to be matched with a strong character. A sherried whisky will please those who like powerful combinations. For a more approachable pairing, The Famous Grouse (a rich blend) will bring in a smooth fruity character. On the spicy side, Talisker (the single malt from the Isle of Skye) will respond with its smokiness and pepperiness. Not for the faint of hearts!'
