The Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey That Pairs Well With Blue Cheese
Blue cheese is a beautiful, complex cheese that needs a richly layered bourbon to pair with it, such as Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
According to Woodword Reserve, it has "more than 200 detectable flavor notes, from bold grain and wood to sweet aromatics, spice, and fruit and floral notes."
The bourbon also has a full-bodied mouthfeel, along with deep, warm notes of spice, caramel, vanilla, and toffee.
Pairing this bourbon with tangy and sharp blue cheese helps kick up all the spirit's tasting notes a notch while tempering the creaminess and boldness of the cheese.
