What snacks pair with whisky?
Snacks and scotch are a match made in heaven. You’ll struggle to go wrong. From pretzels and peanuts to chocolate and cheese; there’s plenty of great options to graze on with a glass of whisky.
But depending on how you enjoy your spirit, you might want to consider different flavours. For example, a rich blend like Ballantine’s 30 year old shouldn’t be outshone – pair it with plainer snacks such as crackers and mild cheddar. Whereas the vibrant profile of Ballantine’s Brazil can handle the harshness of salty, tangy titbits.
You’ll also want to plan complimentary snacks for whisky tasting experiences at home; you’re the host after all. Pick out the flavour profile of each dram and pair with associated flavours. Getting notes of red apple? Cinnamon, pork and pear are a good bet.
No matter your serve, here are some of the best snacks to enjoy with whisky. Our top tip? Chuck them all on one big grazing platter and nibble to your heart’s content.
