Caribbean Reserve & Stilton cheese
Stilton is a crumbly blue cheese with a nutty, salty and bitter flavour. It’s well known for its veiny blue appearance, which is achieved by piercing the crust with needles to let air get inside.
Stilton is often served on a cheeseboard alongside apples and pears. The gentle sweet flavours of these fruits contrasts wonderfully with the acidic taste of stilton, making a very moreish match indeed.
That’s why we recommend pairing Stilton with our Caribbean Reserve Scotch.
This dark amber whisky is finished in barrels that previously contained Caribbean Rum, giving it a tropical twist. The smooth flavour and finish works well with the sharpness of stilton, and sweet aromas of pear and red apple fused with a subtly tropical undertone emulates that classic combination of Stilton and fruit. If you wanted to ramp up the sweetness, you could opt to make a pineapple smash cocktail to go with your favourite blue cheese instead.
So next time you enjoy a cheese board with Stilton, be sure to pour a glass of Caribbean Reserve whisky for a unique flavour experience.
