SUGGESTED CHOCOLATE PAIRING

Chuao - Morocho & Dark Grignottine

The wonderful complexity of this malt works well with the fudgey Morocho and its hint of Calavados, while the Grignottine brings out the "sherriness" of this dram.

 

SUGGESTED CIGAR PAIRING

Partagas Spanish Rosado

Two master blenders come together in this match. The smooth wood and chocolate flavors of the Spanish Rosado highlight the vanilla, caramel and malt of the Highland Park, and both malt and cigar have a clean spice in the background.
