PAIRING RECOMMENDATIONS: This edition work best with sweet fortified wines, especially PX Sherry and also port. Zacapa 23 rum is always a sure winner. Irish whiskies and sherry-finished single malt Scotch whiskies also work, as does cognac if properly aged. Arguably the best pairing partner for this edition is cheese, such as Brie, Manchego, aged Gouda, Comté, Gruyère. You will find that it strongly accentuates the nutty notes in both cheese and chocolate.
