PROFILE: Nose: Berries & orange blossoms. Palate: Roasted almonds, mandarine, cranberry, and coffee. Finish: Berries, almonds, and flowers.
STORY: The weather was generous and dependable throughout the 2019 growing season. We also used a soft touch during roasting and conching. The result is an unusually gentle dark chocolate with lovely notes of mandarine, orange blossoms, nuts, and coffee. Oh 2019, what a smooth and copacetic year you were!
PAIRING RECOMMENDATIONS: This edition is a fun and versatile pairing partner. It works great with a wide range of whiskies, from Scotch single malts to American bourbons. Zacapa 23 rum is amazing, as usual. Well-aged Cognac and Tequila pair very well. In the realm of cheese, opt for something creamy or nutty and not overly pungent. We recommend triple-cremes, mild brie, gouda, brebis, and Alpine-style cheeses.
