Whisky sauce or whisky gravy is one of the best things you can pour over meat and potatoes, and this venison loin recipe with a single malt Scotch sauce proves it

Not only does the Scotch whisky sauce in this recipe smell heavenly, but it’s creamy, malty flavor also complements the lean, gaminess of venison. I’ve made variations of whisky sauces in the past using American whisky and bourbon, but it’s distinctly different when you use Scotch, which is where the original sauce originated.

For the base of the sauce, use butter like the recipe says, but if you have duck fat, use that because it will taste so much better.
