I used the whisky of course! GREAT spread with a lovely kick - I used Seriously Strong white Cheddar cheese and also sprinkled some oats and assorted grains on top before serving with oatcakes............a KEEPER; for sandwiches, oatcakes, crackers and I am going to try it on toast too! Made for the Aussie/NZ Swap and Prop it Up - great recipe thanks Elly! Merci beaucoup encore, FT:-)
