Among the exciting Japanese whiskeys, especiallySingle malt whiskey that clearly shows the characteristics of the distillery, 6 types are carefully selected while considering compatibility with Ecuadorian organic alibaca cacao, and it is a limited product of Valentine 2021 that you can eat and compare with bonbon chocolate.
Pay attention to the mariage of the flavors of Alibaba cacao and each whiskey,Fine-tune with a balance that maximizes individual characteristicsWas piled up.
Malt whiskey is also a simple material called barley and water, but the manufacturing process and land of each distillery so that even if the chocolate is the same cacao, various flavors and tastes can be expressed by the variety, growing environment, and various processes until it becomes chocolate. It produces a wide variety of flavors and flavors depending on the water and barrel aging environment in which it grows. I hope you enjoy it while feeling the common mystery.
It is recommended to take it out of the refrigerator and eat it in 20 minutes.
Whiskey has the most aroma at room temperature, so it is recommended that you take the bonbon chocolate out of the refrigerator and consume it about 20 minutes later. It will be easier to pick up the characteristics of each flavor.
Recommended order of eating
As for the order of eating, it is recommended to eat the three types of bitter ganache first because the milk ganache flavor masks the tongue.
Especially recommended orderAzumi → Akkeshi → Yamazaki → Tsunuki → Yoichi → Chichibuis.
Azumi feels the refreshing acidity and bitterness of eating lemon with its skin, and the sweetness of fragrant wheat, leading to a beautiful aftertaste.
Akkeshi feels a refreshing acidity in the first half, and peat and spicy flavors rush in from the middle stage.
Yamazaki has a dignified personality in which the concentrated sweetness of raisins and prunes reverberates for a long time from the beginning.
Tsunuki feels the vanilla and astringency derived from the barrel, and runs through powerfully with the afterglow that makes you feel the fruit of the tropical country.
In Yoichi, the sweetness of the new barrel, which has a firm barrel feel, is mixed with the scent of the tide, and the moderate peat echoes as a pleasant lingering finish.
When Chichibu feels the sweetness of the barrel, he soon feels a strong peat, which leads to a refreshing and beautiful finish like green apples and herbs.
This whiskey bon bon was developed with the aim of further expanding the overall taste by adding the flavor of alibaca cocoa while making the best use of the characteristics of each whiskey.
Chichibu, Tsunuki, and Yoichi are finished with ganache with a strong milky feeling, and Akkeshi, Azumi, and Yamazaki are finished with ganache with a strong bitterness.
I would like to introduce a little about the criteria for each selection.
The three types summarized in milk ganache have a strong sense of the sweetness of vanilla derived from barrels as a common item, so it was judged to match the milky taste. It was judged that the three varieties summarized in Bitter Ganash each have a direct floral scent of Ariva to support the delicate scents such as sherry barrels, red wine barrels, wheat and citrus.
The ingredients used for bonbon chocolate are all the same, the only difference is whiskey.
(Since the frequency etc. differs depending on the whiskey, the amount of whiskey is finely adjusted depending on the type.)
The most interesting of the 6 kinds of eating comparisons this time isThe 1st release of the first three-year aging of a distillery where Akkeshi, Azumi, and Tsunuki were born at the same time.That is. While spending the same time axis, spending three years in a completely different aging environment that straddles Hokkaido, Fukushima, Kagoshima and the Japanese archipelago, whiskey has a completely different effect, and the taste is also very different.
Akkeshi, which has one of the lowest average temperatures in Japan, matures slowly, while Azumi, which is located in the center of the basin in the Tohoku region and has a large temperature difference, is well-balanced. Aging progresses quickly.
In addition, Chichibu clearly feels Chichibu taste while making heavy pete, Yoichi feels the sweetness of the synonymous new barrel and the scent of the tide, Yamazaki feels the masterpiece of maturity and the deep sweetness of sherry, the same Japan Enjoy the joy of tasting such a different and delicious whiskey with the chocolate mariage.
