SUGGESTED CHOCOLATE PAIRING

Chuao - Candela, Parchita and Picante

Candela is the one for those of you who love peat.  But you can't err with the pairing of Parchita's tropical fruits or Picante's ripe fruit and spicy filling to please your palate in three different ways.  Its your choice! 

 

SUGGESTED CIGAR PAIRING

Don Pepin Garcia Black Cuban Classic 1979 Robusto

This match pits a young whisky against a classic cigar and you come out the winner. The sweet citrus and vanilla flavors, and the subtle smokiness of the malt are accented by the pepper and spices of the cigar. Let the long finish of the whisky fade slightly before puffing to get the most enjoyment out of the pairing.
