“Of course, every snack is improved by the addition of an appropriate beverage, and the more complex and intense flavors found in tree nuts can pair remarkably well with a variety of whiskies.”
Post-stroke, I’ve had to pay much closer attention to my diet—managing cholesterol and sodium, in particular—so I spent a lot of time on Google those first few weeks figuring out what was okay, what needed to be moderated, and what should be eliminated.
Thankfully, whiskey in moderation is okay and can even lower your blood pressure a bit, so I wanted to find a good snack to pair with it and create a satisfying dessert option for myself. I only like pecans in candy, pies, and ice cream, and won’t touch almonds anymore, but I’m curious how cashews might pair with Uncle Nearest. While not one of the recommendations here, it turns out, raw, unsalted pistachios, always a fave, actually go very well with Bulleit Rye, though.
