    • Whisky Concept Tasting

      Let us indulge you in a unique experience of whisky and chocolate pairing that will take you on a journey of flavour.

      The concept is to enhance the personality of the chosen whisky using 3 selected homemade bespoke chocolates.

      The whisky

      Lagavulin  1995 12yo
      Coal smoke and more orange up front, with an oily mouthfeel, citrus fruit and a sharp smoky edge.

      Balvenie Double Wood 17yo

      Elegant and complex oak, vanilla, honeyed sweetness and a hint of green apple. Sweet taste with dried fruits, sherbet spice, toasted almonds and cinnamon, layered with a richness of creamy toffee notes and traces of oak and deep vanilla.

      Dalmore Castle Leod Vintage 1995

      On the palate, this is elegant, balanced and confident, with oranges, kiwi and even mango flavours, along with vanilla, honey and spice. The finish is long, fruity, spicy and luxurious, with brittle toffee, ginger and a hint of liquorice.

      Johnnie Walker Platinum 18yo

      Rich, sweet and warming, with creamy malt, oats and cereal. A spicy vanilla cinnamon dusting too with the gentle smoke again developing. Dark chocolate with caramelised peel at the end. 

      Woodford Reserve Aged Cask Rye & New Cask Rye
      Each bottling is made of 100% Rye, with the New Cask being finished in a brand new barrel, while the Aged Cask is matured in used barrels.

      • For the Aged Cask the aroma is delicate, slightly grassy with  light citrus and very subtle vanilla. The taste is “young”, with notes of green & black pepper, very light vanilla with a nice clean finish.
      • For the New Cask  the aroma is full of oak, cinnamon, caramel & vanilla, with a taste of soft pepper and tons of nuttiness on the palate. Much fuller bodied than the aged cask, with a slightly sweet finish


      The Chocolate

      Mandarin and Tonka Bean Caramel- A light soft caramel blended with fresh mandarin and infused with Tonka bean for a soft, fruity and warming finish.

      Plan Bee London Honey Ganache- 66% Caribbean dark chocolate blended with locally sourced Regent's Park honey.

      Ceylon Earl Grey Tea ganache-  70% Honduran dark chocolate blended with essence of Ceylon Pejoe tea and bergamot. Soft, sensual and aromatic.
