    Bourbon and chocolate

    Over the coarse of 13 yrs of enjoying the brown nectar i come to realize chocolate and bourbon pair well together. Junior mints and a good bourbon around 6- 10 yrs old paired together makes it seem like your drinking a mint julep. I'm a fan of dark chocolate and seems to pair well with longer aged bourbons like Stagg. Peanut m&m's seem to pair well with anything.

    Agree with this. Like Recees so I get peanut butter too.

    Re: Bourbon and chocolate

    I recently had a slice of chocolate torte that was drizzled in a dark chocolate sauce along with a healthy pour of OGD 114 and I damn near shit my pants. I'm guessing just about any bourbon would have sufficed but the combination was amazing.

    Re: Bourbon and chocolate

    I like the dark chocolate with bourbon; it seems to be a good palate prepper! I love Reeces, but haven't tried that. Straight (or neat?) peanut butter is too much for me - seems to dull my palate (although I love it!)

    Re: Bourbon and chocolate

    Any chocolate is great with any Bourbon; but my fave is Dove brand Dark with Henry McKenna 10-yr. SB. Amrbosia of the very nicest kind!

    Hershey's dark with any of my BIB's. Come to think of it that's the only time I enjoy chocolate.

    Re: Bourbon and chocolate

    I normally don't like dark chocolate but I have found Costco's Dark Chocolate Almond Toffee to be a great pairing with bourbon. It really helps to cleanse the palate in between pours of different bourbons. And it is so good!
