The classic Old Fashioned uses Bourbon as its base. But swap in a Canadian whisky—made with sweet corn and some rye grain—and you have a truly Canadian combination.
Maple adds just a touch of sweetness to this creamy cheddar, and its mild acidity embraces the light spiciness of the whisky. A dash or two of Angostura bitters rounds out the flavour complexity.
Fruity, spicy, mildly smoky... this is a pairing with a satisfying cascade of flavours and textures.
