What foods go well with scotch?

  1. oh man, nothing is going to get over the flavors of cigars and scotch...

    maybe, blue cheese and strawberry jam on crackers, some strong smoked and sliced sausage plates, stuffed olives, anchovies... anything sort of ripe and strong. what about kimchee with shots of fish sauce?
