We paired the Diesel "Grind" robusto with Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch Whisky. It is aged 21 years and finished in rum casks.
The Diesel Grind Robusto is full bodied yet smooth and has hints of earth, cedar, coffee, and spices over a creamy tobacco core.
From Glenfiddich: "Casks that once contained premium Caribbean rum are used to finish this expression, aged for 21 years. Four months in Gran Reserva barrels selected by our Malt Master, wrap this single malt whisky in distinct aromas and flavours.
An intense and vanilla sweet aroma, floral with hints of banana. And a soft, lively taste with lime, ginger and spice are followed by a complex and very long ending.
Our rum finish releases layers of intensity and sets this 21 Year Old apart from other whiskies."
Each month we will be putting together a cigar and spirit pairing. We have been enjoying fine cigars and spirits for many years. Now it is time to share some of our favorite pairings. We will be using our spirits as well as others and will be based on the season.
