Why let wine have all the fun? We’ve all heard about wine and food pairings. Craft beer is even hitting its stride with food pairings. Super. I like the idea of complementary things. Though, admittedly, food and drink pairings are mostly lost on me. My food pairing is summed: I like the wine & I like the food = good pairing. I just can’t be bothered to really care. There are a couple of things I do actually care about, Scotch and Music. I love Scotch (which I need to find a new way to phrase as someone will always shout the line from Anchorman – no apologies needed if you just did the same in your head while reading this…). It is my jam, as the kids say. Once indoctrinated, Scotch has as many nuances as the albums we love.
