SUGGESTED CHOCOLATE PAIRING

Chuao - Candela and Rio Caribe

Our favorite pairing is with the smoky, spicy Candela, however the Rio Caribe enhances the peaty & malty flavors adding a curious bit of salt.

 

SUGGESTED CIGAR PAIRING

Ashton San Cristobal Fabuloso 

Don't fight the pepper. The earthy flavors, slight pepperiness, and full body of the San Cristobal work well with the Talisker's pepper finish.
