Add some jalapeno-infused salami or honey-glazed prosciutto for a kick of heat, balanced with a touch of sweetness. You can also include spicy mustard or hot pepper jelly as accompaniments to add an extra layer of flavor. The contrast between the bold, smoky whiskey and the sweet and spicy charcuterie will create a taste sensation that will leave your guests wanting more. So go ahead and add some heat to your board and let the flavors dance on your palate!
