Whisky Pairing 4: Mature Cheddar & Onion
Last updated: 10.07am, Monday 23rd May 2016
For our penultimate Whisky - Crisp pairing we've gone for our ever-popular Mature Cheddar & Onion crisps.
This pairing was written by Martine Nouet, Editor of Whisky Magazine France and contributor to Whisky Magazine UK:
'The cheddar brings in a fruity note. A mild but tasty combination which will match with a dry Highland single malt. For instance, Dalwhinnie (Northern Highlands) and its honeyed touch, Oban (Western Highlands) and its slight saltiness. A grassy whisky will also make a harmonious match. This flavour is probably the easiest to combine with whisky as it will suit the whisky cereal/malty flavours. Most blended whiskies will marry well with these crisps too.'
Feel free to send in your Mackie's Crisps & Whisky pairing recommendations, we'd love to hear how you enjoy yours!
