I'm a big fan of vinegars, and all things vinegar-based. I could consume mustard on mustard. And, have.
So when a chef friend of mine turned me onto Noble Tonic No. 4 vinegar and described it as "what God would drink to wash down a spoonful of Castor oil" ... you could say I was intrigued.
In many ways, she was right. This isn't a pungent vinegar like Balsamic, nor floral like Champagne, but something all onto itself.
It's elemental and complex enough to pair with just about anything. In fact, it's complex enough to drink on its own. And, of late, I've been consuming it straight from a shot glass. So much so that my bottle of Talisker 15 is getting awfully lonely.
