Whiskey Jake

The second episode pairing different whiskeys with Halloween candy.

The whiskey

  • Devils River Small Batch Texas Rye
  • Glenfiddich 14 Year Bourbon Barrel Reserve

The candy

  • Gobstopper — orange
  • Laffy Taffy — banana
  • Sweet Tart — strawberry

Each has a unique result — some good and some not so good.

Halloween is near and that means candy. You do not need a fancy dinner to have a whiskey pairing. This is part 1 of 4 episodes where I explore different candy and whiskeys to find out which goes best together. Each episode will feature four pieces of candy and three whiskeys (bourbon, rye, and scotch.)

In the first episode, I explore the classic Hershey bar, Kit Kat, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, and the Almond joy. The whiskeys are Treaty Oak Ghosthill Bourbon, Balcones Texas Rye 100, and The Famous Grouse Ruby Cask Finish.
