^^^^That looks pretty freaking awesome Cam!^^^^

I'm much more boring that you... I keep chocolate covered almonds from Trader Joe's in the pantry and often enjoy a few with my bourbon and/or rye's.

Sort of chocolate and bourbon.... I got to try a Smoked Chocolate Sazerac on the weekend.... It's a Sazerac made with chocolate bitters, white cacao and smoked chocolate fog. It comes with a square of dairy milk chocolate to enhance the flavor. Superb!

Now THAT's a cocktail!! And, a great use of chocolate!

Milk chocolate covered raisins and ECBP is proving to be a blissful marriage at the present. :yum:

I am snacking on bite size "Caramel Apple" Milky Way bars, and sippin' WT RRSBSmB and I'm thinking I might finish both the bag and the bottle in one sitting. Holy Fall Season and A Cool Night, this pairing is delicious! :yum:

My wife enjoys making cookies for the holidays. And, either my wife or I makes fudge too. Well…… I just found out that chocolate fudge and MMCS compliment each other rather nicely. :P

 

Ho! Ho! Ho! Joe

As a newbie scotch drinker, years ago, I was introduced to a wonderful pairing that is still one of my favorites.  Balvenie 15yo and warm chocolate chip cookies.   I am now primarily a bourbon drinker and I have taken this pairing into my bourbon as well and it never disappoints, especially when Paired with a full body Cask Strength such as GTS.  

When my sweet tooth calls out, I also pair my bourbon with dark chocolate, Chocolate brownies and in the summer a nice 4RSB and vanilla ice cream really hits the spot.

Dark chocolate covered pecans with any bourbon or rye never fails...  so much so that I just had to get up for a quick run into the kitchen!

Included a few pieces of Toblerone between sipping's this evening. Nothing seemed anywhere close to out of place with EWSB, JBBIB, or VOB. Of course then I had to go ruin it all with some UTZ Kettle Classics Old Style Salt & Malt Vinegar potato chips. Damn those things are addictive!

Damndest thing tonight. I'd been eating some 86% Ghirardelli Intense Dark chocolate before having a pour of 2012 GTS and got a fairly strong taste of tobacco in the finish after the first sip. Sort of like a light to medium strength cigar. It only happened for the one sip, then the GTS's strength took over and I never noticed it again.

One time a year or two ago, I was at a whiskey bar with some friends and colleagues.  I was having a glass of Woodford, and I felt like having some chocolate with it.  Fortunately, they had chocolate chips, and that went well.

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!

mbroo is on point with the comment that chocolate clears the palate when doing side-by-side sequential tasting.  At least for me, it completely wipes out taste of the prior sample.  Odd that it should have that effect.  Perhaps not on everyone.

Joe that looks incredibly tasty.  Our Kroger sells dark chocolate covered dried cranberries in bulk.  I really enjoy munching on those while sipping some good bourbon.  You ought to give it a try.

Yeah, I am with Kevin.  Those look incredible.  I will have to look for them.  Although, I doubt I will be lucky enough to find them.  I do enjoy dark chocolate, caramel, toffee with bourbon. We shop Costco so I used to end up with a chocolate/toffee that they no longer carry.  Now, I opt for a dark chocolate and caramel.  It is a great palate cleanser and tastes soooooo good.

Last night I had a pour of Pikesville Rye 110 to wash down two scoops of Moose Tracks ice cream. It was a wonderful combination and a perfect way to wind down after a hot weekend.
