Whiskey & Cheese are a match made in heaven, or in this case in a speakeasy and a local cheese shop. This box contains three 2oz drams of Bourbon or Rye whisk(e)y, with appropriate cheese pairings provided by our friends at The Cheese Lady, right down the street.
- Colonel EH Taylor Small Batch Bourbon
Tastes of caramel corn sweetness, mingled with butterscotch and licorice. The aftertaste is a soft mouth-feel that turns into subtle spices of pepper and tobacco. Paired with Prima Donna, richly aged cow’s milk cheese from Holland.
- Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel Rye
Russell’s Reserve has continuously produced some of the best rye whiskeys, and this non-chill filtered, 104 proof single barrel rye is no exception — delivering a balance of spicy pepper, vanilla and tobacco flavors – paired with Délice de Bourgogne, a washed rind, cave-aged cheese from France
- Elijah Craig Barrel Proof ‘C918’
On the palate, this whiskey is aggressive but not rough; warm and mouth-filling. Leather and black tea hit on the back palate, as everywhere else is overwhelmed at first. Adding a drop of water opens up a wealth of flavor: it’s candied, super-sweet at first, like agave syrup. Vanilla bean, black pepper and cigar-box cedar mingle on the mid-palate, as the spicy tannins linger on the finish- paired with English Poacher’s Cheddar, a creamy and rich cheddar made with carmelized onions.
