The Glenlivet 15 YO

Dish: Nilofari Seekh
Pairing Logic: A rare kebab of lotus seeds and stems cooked on a wooden skewer, flavoured with fresh herbs,mace and green cardamom. Grilled on skewer and sprinkled with aromatic masala.This vegetarian kebab, though high on spice is balanced well due to the sweetness of the lotus stems and has the perfect bite for some good whisky on the side. The layered notes of oak, marzipan and cinnamon are a good foil to the complexity of the kebab and carry the whisky well as a worthy companion.
