That is actually not the primary, nor will it doubtless be the final chocolate flavored whiskey to reach in the marketplace, however Heritage Distilling’s Cocoa Bomb Chocolate Whiskey is the latest. Beginning with Heritage’s personal high-corn bourbon recipe after which flavored with chocolate and cane sugar, it goals to fulfill the candy tooth of whiskey lovers in all places. Let’s see.
The nostril hits with somewhat little bit of vanilla and cinnamon earlier than the baking chocolate notes arrive. The palate is as promised: chocolate all over, with among the anticipated bourbon-y notes of oak and vanilla arriving briefly order. There’s somewhat bit of warmth in the direction of the end, which lingers for a couple of moments earlier than diminishing into extra chocolate and somewhat little bit of ginger.
Mixing this into an Outdated Original offered minor complexities to the cocktail, particularly with orange bitters, however in the end served as a novelty to the normal, and never one thing I’d take pleasure in with any regularity. Bottling this at the next proof could have offered barely extra warmth, complexity, and journey. Variations on the theme can be a most welcome expertise. Because the inaugural bottling, it’s a serviceable, restrained divergence from the well-worn path.
