Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate, Spirits and Savory Snacks Theme Week.
Today's Blackwell Fine Jamaican Rum - Rum Truffles were from Charbonnel et Walker (London). The company was established in 1875.
Aroma notes included: warm rum, brown sugar/honey, and chocolate.
The Rum Truffle centers had a buttery texture and melt, and were surrounded by a firmer, relatively thick dark chocolate shell.
The smooth dark chocolate and rum flavors were harmonious and balanced, and had a slight natural, brown sugar/honey sweetness and booziness that extended into the finish.
These Rum Truffles were enjoyed with salted nuts and blood orange (fresh fruit).
