What do you need for a whiskey tasting?

For a successful whiskey tasting, you do not need any special knowledge or equipment. The most important thing, of course, is the whisky itself. Depending on the organizer and tasting format, you can choose from different varieties and brands. From Scottish single malts to international rarities, there is a wide range from which you can decide. In addition, you should make sure that you have suitable glasses available. Whisky glasses with a tulip-shaped opening are best suited to optimally capture and enjoy the aromas. A water bottle and a glass of water should also be on hand to neutralize the palate between whiskies.

Which cheese goes well with whiskey?

The combination of whiskey and cheese is a true taste explosion. Some cheeses harmonize particularly well with whiskey and complement its flavors perfectly. Here are some suggestions for cheeses that go great with whiskey:

  • Cheddar: A strong, flavorful cheddar, pairs well with smoky and peaty whiskey.
  • Blue cheese: The creamy texture and intense flavor of blue cheeses complement full-bodied and rich whiskey well.
  • Gouda: A mildly aromatic Gouda pairs well with fruity and lighter whisky varieties.
  • Goat cheese: The slightly tart flavor of goat cheese can accentuate the sweet and fruity notes of some whisky varieties.

Of course, these are just a few examples, and ultimately the perfect cheese-whiskey combination also depends on personal preferences.

How to taste whiskey?

When tasting whiskey, there is a specific procedure to experience the full flavor. Here are the steps for tasting whiskey:

  • Look at the color: Hold the whiskey glass up to the light and look at the color of the whiskey. The hues can give clues to the age and type of whiskey.
  • Smell the whiskey: Hold the glass at a slight angle and take gentle breaths to capture the aromas. Try to identify different scents such as vanilla, fruit, or smokiness.
  • Tasting the whiskey: Take a small sip of whiskey and let it roll over your tongue. Notice the different flavors and texture of the whiskey in your mouth.
  • Swallow or spit: You can either swallow or spit out the whiskey, depending on your preferences and amount of tastings. If you are tasting multiple whiskeys, spitting can help prevent palate overload.
