Q: My husband is having a few of his friends over for a whiskey tasting. I want to make a cheese tray to go with the various whiskeys they will be sampling but I don’t know where to start. The Cheesemonger’s recent post regarding Kerrygold Aged Cheddar was a help, but is only one cheese and I’ll need more than that for my tray!
I don’t know the exact whiskeys they will be sampling, as it’s BYOW, but they all will be “Highland Scotch Whiskeys.” Any suggestions?

Editor: Ginni, well, Nora our Cheesemonger says that whiskey truly improves almost any cheese. We would definitely try that aged Cheddar, as well as a really good Gruyere and an aged Gouda.
Readers, what would you pair with whiskey on a cheese plate?
