For this Straight Bourbon Whiskey 70% Dark Chocolate bar, the folks at Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate turned to friends from an artisan craft distillery—Sonoma Brothers Distilling. Using heavy-char new American oak barrels from a three-year-aged 'Straight Bourbon Whiskey', they age the highest quality certified heirloom cacao from Belize for six months. The dry aging process allows the cocoa nibs to absorb the aroma and flavor of barrel and the spirit. Once fully aged, the delicious nibs are used to handcraft a 70% dark chocolate bar by adding only cocoa butter and cane sugar. The finished chocolate bar is sweet with complex & pronounced oak and bourbon flavors.
