Blended Irish whisky tends to be light, approachable, malty, and is generally not smoky. Slane, a new product from the area of Slane Castle near Dublin, is no exception. With a lovely sweetness from oloroso sherry barrels and an easygoing price tag to boot, this whisky will pair well with your favourite light style cheddar or Australian tasty cheese.
Whisky is not traditionally designed to pair with food the way that wine and many beers are. That being said, we can’t survive on drams alone. Cured meats, oysters, nuts, dried fruit and chocolate are just a few of the things that can pair well with whisky – but we recommend going with cheese, as it’s social and often goes well.
Achieving the perfect whisky and cheese pairing isn't easy – which is why we're bringing you this guide to five simple and delicious combinations. You can find all these cheeses at most supermarkets or fromageries, and the whiskies at your local First Choice Liquor store.
