We usually use green grapes and flat water to cleanse our palette between whiskies.
With our original whisky tasting group, we are very strict about what can be served with our whiskies – just a few slices of cucumber and perhaps plain bread sticks or crackers – with plenty of water to rinse before we repeat our sampling process with the next whisky.
However with our whisky ladies, we have a bit more fun with mixing and matching, blending sipping without accompaniment then experimenting with different delights like fruit, cheese and chocolate… perhaps a thali of chocolate delights?
Both work – it just depends on whether your aim is an evening of the purest sampling or playing around with pairings.
Anyone have firm notions of what to accompany (or not) your whisky sipping adventures?
