77% Teeling Whiskey Barrel Aged Oko Caribe Chocolate Bar
Now this really is proper chocolate. This rich dark chocolate with 77% cocoa has been Barrel-aged for 2 months in a Hungarian Oak barrel, that had been previously filled with Teeling Whiskey's Distillery Special. YUM.
This batch is very special. The chocolate nibs are infused with the aromas of the Hungarian oak barrel, bringing flavours of cinnamon, toffee, creaminess and toasted oak, as well as a lovely underlying whiskey sweetness.
As bean-to-bar chocolate makers, The Proper Chocolate Company hand-sort, roast, crack and winnow (that's removing the husks to you and me) the cocoa beans; then refine, conche (that's the intense mixing, agitating, and aerating of heated the liquid chocolate), age, temper, mould and package each bar of chocolate, all from their base in Dublin.
What's it made of?
Organic cocoa beans aged in a whiskey barrel, organic sugar and organic cocoa butter. Cacoa Bean variety is Hispaniola. Certified Organic.
Origin: Öko Caribe, Duarte Province, Dominican Republic, harvested in 2019.
How does it come?
The 50gr bar comes in a plastic pouch approx. 20x13cm
