Quince's Rum and Cheese Pairing Is Good for the Rum

Quince restaurant continues its series of cheese and spirit pairings this week with rum and artisan cheese ($36, available only in the bar and lounge). While Quince's first effort, Scotch and cheese, is a somewhat established coupling, rum and cheese is far more esoteric.

Pairing “with cow's milk [cheese] just isn't worth it,” says Katrina Parlato, Quince's general manager. “The rum turns the milk sour. It's completely bitter on the finish. Sheep and goat milk [cheeses] were best.”

The pairings that made the cut? Here you go:
