Whisky Pairing


Auchentoshan 21 Year Old 


Hidden sweetness in  this wonderfully complex  "Lowlander" is brought out by the date flavor.  While the slight smokiness of the ham makes a great complement to this scotch. 


This appetizer might also be paired with other scotches that have the keywords "dried fruit" listed in their tasting notes.

Prosciutto Wrapped Dates

Adapted from recipe and reviews at



16 Large Medjool Dates

1/3 cup softened Cherve cheese

16 large basil leaves


Package of prosciutto





Remove pits from large Medjool dates.  Soften cream cheese slightly and pipe into dates.  Can be made up to this point and stored overnight.


Just before broiling, wrap each date with a large basil leaf held by wrapping a piece of prosciutto around the date with a slight overlap at the end.  Broil until cheese is bubbly for about 3 to 4 minutes.  Serve warm.


This recipe is also good when a sliver of toasted almond or a smoked almond is tucked inside the date.  You may also substitute herbed cheese for the Cherve, and parma ham for the prosciutto. These dates are best served warm but are also tasty at room temperature for more care free party preparation.
