Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate, Spirits and Savory Snacks Theme Week.
Today's Whisky Truffles were from Charbonnel et Walker (London). The company was originally established in 1875, and has supplied chocolates to British royalty ("By Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen").
Aroma and flavor notes included: dark chocolate, whisky and butter. All three harmonized quite nicely.
These dark chocolate whisky truffles had a buttery smooth and creamy texture, particularly the spirit-infused ganache (filling) centers.
Today's Whisky Truffles were enjoyed with savory snacks (chicken chips and salted nuts).
