Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Rum/Spirits Theme Week. Yo ho ho and a truffle full of rum -- well, rum flavoring perhaps. The 65% single origin Columbian dark chocolate coating around these rum centers was rich and pleasant. The artificially flavored rum filling in these truffles reminded me of butter rum flavored Lifesavers we used to pilfer as kids from the candy drawer. We used to crunch on these until they stuck to our fillings. (Those did taste good, I have to admit.)

Thank you to the Chocolate Garage for the sample box containing two truffles. Note: if one of these 2 truffles was Aguardiente and one was Rum, I couldn't taste the difference. (Aguardiente loosely translates as "firewater" and in Columbia often refers to anise-flavored spirits.)
