It is a usual practice of liquor consumers to avoid sweet-tasting edibles while taking their favorite liquor. The popular notion is that the sweet foods exaggerate intoxication to dangerous levels, hence the combination is considered untouchable. Salty and spicy foods provide a good company to bitter-tasting liquors for their smoothness effect on bitterness. But the case of chocolates is different.

chocolate barsChocolates are not only sweet but have a smooth bitterness too, that is why combining chocolates to edibles while drinking is preferred in many societies and the trend is picking up fast. Seeing the trend, chocolate manufacturers have also taking up manufacturing chocolate bars with liquors in them to make the experience of the chocolate consumer more valuable to him.  Chocolate is a high-nutrition edible. From the ancient times, it has been known to people, hence named ‘Theobroma’. It true meaning is ‘food of the Theo race’ but people generally translate this name as ‘food of the Gods’, to justify their liking of the chocolates and their nutritional value. Although, chocolates may be taken with whisky, rum, beer etc without any risk of mismatching, their best combination is with the scotch, particularly theblack dog triple gold reserve Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve, which seems to be made to be taken with chocolates. It has an enchanting antique gold colour. There’s a lovely balance of matured wood and rich malt touches the senses. Smoothness of vanilla and butterscotch are skillfully embedded on on layers of honey, creamy caramel, cinammon and marzipan with a subtle hint of citrus fruits which will best complement to the slight bitterness of a dark chocolate.

Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve is the only blended Scotch that is produced involving a triple maturation process. The triple maturation process which involves Grain whiskies and Malt whiskies separately matured in American Bourbon Casks and then blended together and matured again in Oloroso Sherry Butts for an extra longer period of time to give the blend a distinctive flavour and a delicate finish.

India has an old-age tradition of salty spicy foods with consumption of liquors. Adding chocolate to match with liquor may come as a psychological shock to people. But since the taste for globalization is picking up fast in matters of foods, consumption of chocolates will become a practice soon. However, manufacturing of liquor-filled chocolates would not be allowed in India for legal reasons and particularly for the reason that chocolate is still considered a food for children.
