Variety: Heirloom Nacional
Wt: 50g (1.76oz)
PROFILE: Nose: Faintly floral with green grass and hints of fresh eucalyptus. Palate: Pistachio, orange bitters, black cherry, hints of espresso. Finish: Fresh oak and subtle notes of toffee and honey.
STORY: The 2017 harvest, blessed with optimal growing conditions, lent itself to an approachable and well-balanced edition of To’ak Chocolate, subtly hitting on all of the signature flavor notes (fruit, flowers, nutty and woody) associated with heirloom Nacional cacao. A celebration of coastal Ecuadorian terroir.
PAIRING RECOMMENDATIONS: As always, sweet fortified wines like Port and Pedro Ximenez sherry work beautifully. Zacapa 23 rum, triple-distilled Irish whiskey, and sherry-finished single malt Scotch whisky are also excellent pairing partners. Bowmore 1965, a fascinating Islay single malt, paired particularly well with this edition. In the realm of cheeses, we recommend Gruyère, Comté, aged Gouda, and Brie.
