Whisky and Cheese No 3: Popping candy in flower meadows
Young & Spritely
Soft goats milk
When I tasted this whisky at the SMWS tasting room in London I was getting a flavour that I just couldn’t quite name. The closest I could get was penny sweets from the the 70s. Those clever people on the tasting panel nailed it: Flying Saucers, of course. A young Dorstone has a fluffy cloud-like texture and a spritely acidity that always reminds me of Sherbet Dib Dabs, or the centre of a Flying Saucer. It’s a wonderfully gentle cheese with very little goaty tang which is why I would pair it with whiskies on the younger and more delicate end of the spectrum.

You can buy this and other great British cheeses in cheese shops and delis all over the UK. My favourite is Neal’s Yard Dairy.
