Whiskey & Whisky CollectionRegular price
Whisky vs. Whiskey? It all depends on where it's crafted :) .
For several days, we set about tasting & testing our way through multiple renditions of these bonbons and decided to start with these three. It wasn't easy :) . Let's just say we were absolutely giddy by lunch time.
To create a very special gift, we suggest pairing these chocolates with our candied walnuts and several cheeses. Our good friend, Julia Hallman, cheese and chocolate extraordinaire at Formaggio Kitchen Cambridge recommended several different cheeses: well aged gouda (Boerenkaas Grand Cru / Belgium), a farmhouse cheddar (Cabot Clothbound Cheddar / Vermont), or a creamy blue (Stilton / UK)
- Knob Creek Bourbon Smoked Maple – A Kentucky whiskey with maple notes, mild smoked hickory, vanilla and caramel tones and a smooth finish. Think maple bacon...
- Balvenie DoubleWood Scotch - A 12 year old single malt scottish whisky matured in two different wood casks with notes of nuts, sweetness, delicate sherry, and mild cinnamon with a long warm finish.
- Damnation Alley Whiskey – This small distillery is a favorite of ours. It's located locally and uses 100% Massachusetts grown ingredients. They have seven different recipes for the bourbon alone based on Mainstone Farm corn and barley from Valley Malt. This particular batch of whiskey has notes of tobacco & pepper.
