Deadlines, and more deadlines to finish up projects. On top of that you went house hunting in a new city with sick kids in tow and had to find new a suitable school for the little ones. Pictures on property sites only show the good of the house. You have seen enough water damage, funny architectural features and cat stained carpets to last you a lifetime.
I have not done a whisky and cheese pairing for ages. I have been savoring all the old favourites, so it is high time I try something again. The Wyke cheese selection at Checkers is amazing. The mature cheddar is a firm favorite in our house and regularly paired with the peatier drams. A couple of weeks ago I found a Wyke Bonfire cheese which is a smoked mature cheddar with paprika. It sounded rather delicious, so I decided, this is the perfect cheese to experiment with.
