If you’re out shopping for some sliced ham – as I was – and you come across a Whiskey Smoked one – there can only be one response – buy it!
Now it might be a gimmick.
It might not be up to much.
But it sure is worth a punt!
I happily slapped a few slices in a sandwich layered with mayonnaise for a taster.
To be fair no whiskey has been used in the smoking. It’s the whiskey wood chips that provide the fuel source for the aromatic smoke after the spirited liquid has been removed.
Trying the ham ‘neat’ did reveal some subtle smokiness which gave welcome added flavour.
Suited my palate just fine!
