The combinations suggested by Matthew will surprise your guests by their originality: this time, he suggests serving rum with the cheese plateau!
Three-year-old aged rum:
+ Vieux Comté
The flavours of wood, vanilla and ripe fruits combine wonderfully with the fruity taste and the texture of Vieux Comté cheese.
Five-year-old aged rum:
+ Refined Camembert
The hints of precious, slightly ‘rancio’ wood and crystallised fruits harmonise with the strength and the smoothness of refined Camembert
‘Rancio’: refers to deliberate oxygenation. The slow prolonged action modifies the molecules. The fruit takes on the flavour of dried fruits (walnuts, almonds, figs). Cooking aromas emerge: coffee roasting and cocoa.
Seven-year-old aged rum:
A ‘must’, this is an explosive-flavoured rum with exotic hints of crystallised fruits, a round powerful flavour, for a perfect combination with the strong complex taste of Munster cheese.
Ten-year-old aged rum:
A Rum giving out scents of tobacco, sandalwood and prunes, with subtle after-notes reflecting this strong-tasting cheese with a real character.
Louis & Charles aged rum:
The apotheosis: the complexity, the softness and the honeyed notes of flambéd bananas, the “sugary taste” of this exceptional Rum enables it to mix wonderfully with blue Roquefort, for the perfect combination!
