Complementing the Pear and Oak Notes of the Glenfiddich 12 Year Old

23 June 2016

The pear and oak notes of the whisky complement the scampi sashimi, while both are similarly delicate. The flavours of the coriander and chilli will coat the mouth and then be released by a sip of the spirit. The olive oil introduces that fattiness that never fails to help a pairing.
