The Perfect Pair?

Peanut butter and jelly. Bacon and maple syrup. French fries and a chocolate frosty (trust us). People have been combining flavors to create something new since forever. 

Coffee and whiskey are one of these great, classic combinations because the two drinks are rich, aromatic, and flavorful. Whiskey's sweet side can tone down super strong coffee, and the smokey layers of whiskey can enhance the coffee beans' roasted flavor. The right whiskey can also highlight the tastes of chocolate, almond, citrus, and berry that can be found in coffee depending on where it's grown and how the beans are processed. 

Some say that Irish whiskey or bourbon work well in coffee. Others say that whiskey barrel aged coffee, which involves putting green coffee beans into retired whiskey barrels for a few months, enhances the coffee beans' complex flavor profile.

Whatever your choice, the nuanced and layered combination of these two beloved beverages can elevate each other. Either way, it's been a winning combo for lovers of both beverages for ages.
