The obsession with whiskey has inspired some restaurants to offer carnivores a new pairing experience. Chef Christina Lecki of the Breslin in NYC creates whiskey-worthy recipes; here, four ideal pairings.

HIBIKI JAPANESE HARMONY ($65) 
This astonishingly soft, pristine Japanese whisky is aged in American, sherry and Japanese oak casks. It pairs extremely well with lighter meat courses.

FORTY CREEK 
DOUBLE BARREL RESERVE ($55) 
A recent import from Canada, this whisky is full of baking-spice flavors: nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla. It’s fantastic with juicy roasts.

THE FEATHERY ($65) 
A blend of three single malts, this Scotch is aged in former sherry barrels. These impart a little toasty sweetness that’s nice with grilled meats.

HOCHSTADTER’S 
VATTED STRAIGHT RYE ($35) 
This spicy, assertive rye—a blend of aged whiskeys sourced from across North America—is a good match for heftier cuts of meat.
