It's no secret that chocolate and whiskey go together, but a friend actually came across a dark chocolate bar made with whiskey. Yes, please. It’s by Butlers with a tag line that says “Purveyors of Happiness.” Not going to argue with that.
So, on the nose, the package gives off a definite whiff of whiskey.
On the tongue, it is actually quite well balanced. Like spiked chocolate frosting – deep, rich chocolate with notes of whiskey around the edges. It’s sweet, but not too sweet, with just a hint of orange. It has a long finish – the taste definitely lingers on the tongue.
I wouldn’t say it replaces having chocolate in one hand and whiskey in the other, but it’s a good mid-day, work-appropriate alternative. And it takes care of two cravings at once…although I have to admit, it still makes me want a little dram on the side.
