Whisky and Cheese No 5: A polar bear's birthday cake
Juicy, Oak & Vanilla
Hard sheeps milk
If you are lucky enough to be allowed to cut open a whole Berkswell cheese you will be greeted with a heady burst of pineapple aroma. It is a surprising and delicious flavour to find in a cheese and brings me back to those cheese and pineapple hedgehogs of my 1970s youth. With their tropical fruit notes of passionfruit, banana and pineapple itself, the Juicy, Oak and Vanilla whiskies make a great match for this intriguing cheese. The partnership gains character and depth from the non-fruity elements in the whisky, particularly the woody, and lightly caramel flavours.
