Continuing with the Bourbon Heritage month theme, I was looking around for a few interesting bourbon food paring ideas, when I came across an article that recommend pairing a bourbon with a Snicker. Wait… What? A super sweet Snicker bar paired with sweet bourbon. Would this not be an overly sweet affair? I was unsure if this pairing would make a blue Monday better or worse.

For the last 7 years, we don’t go out for New Years Eve. We stay at home. We watch the fireworks from the patio and try some interesting whisky chocolate pairings. This is our idea of a perfect New Years Eve celebration. Ending an old year and starting a new year with a few great whisky chocolate pairings. In October already, we start to look around for interesting chocolates to pair with whisky. Ok… who am I kidding… buying and tasting chocolate in October for New Years Eve is actually just an excuse to eat chocolates in October already.
Every year, for the last 5 years, on New Years Eve we do a Whisky Chocolate Pairing. The process starts in November when we start looking around for interesting chocolates. When we have found some, we try to match the tasting notes of the chocolate with the tasting notes of the whisky.
The whisky choices are based on our shared and personal favourites. They are also whiskies that we tried during 2014. Same as last year, we end off with our Single Malt of the Year paired with something interesting. This year, we were lucky to find 2 interesting South African made chocolates that we paired with whisky.
Traditionally on New Years Eve we do a Whisky Chocolate Pairing. It has been a tradition on our house for the last couple of years. Choosing the whiskies for our New Years Eve 2014 was quite difficult, as we tasted some wonderful whiskies this year. We chose the whisky chocolate pairing below after much deliberation and the choice is based on our shared and personal favourites.
