It's the holiday season, and the final WhiskyCast episode for 2005 focuses on the marriage between whisky and food. Forget about wine and cheese...John Glaser of Compass Box says whisky and cheese makes a better combination. Woodford Reserve executive chef David Larson treats fine whiskies like varietal wines, and uses bourbon in almost everything he cooks. There are also a couple of whisky recipes available at the WhiskyCast web site -- www.whiskycast.com! Happy Holidays!
