Woodford Reserve Partners With Compartés On Limited-Edition Chocolates

|

Kentucky-based whiskey maker Woodford Reserve teamed up with the Los Angeles-based chocolatiers to create a limited-edition collection made to pair with Double Oaked Bourbon

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and with that in mind, Woodford Reserve has partnered with gourmet chocolate brand Compartés to create a set of limited-edition chocolates inspired by Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon.

Compartés chocolatier Jonathan Grahm teamed up with Woodford Reserve Master Distiller Elizabeth McCall to create unique chocolate designed to pair with the Double Oaked whiskey. Handcrafted by a small team of chocolatiers in Los Angeles, each of the four truffle flavors looks to complement the Double Oaked sweet aromatic flavor profile.

“Jonathan Grahm is a true genius and artist,” says McCall. “The tasting notes of wood, spice, and florals found in the chocolates align perfectly with the flavors found in Woodford Reserve Double Oaked.”

Compartés x Woodford Reserve chocolates are handcrafted with a gold design and include four unique flavors that accentuate specific characteristics of Double Oaked:

  • Butterscotch chocolate compliments the sweet aromatic flavors in Double Oaked, enhancing the butterscotch notes and bringing out the roasted coffee flavor. The combination of the bourbon and butterscotch chocolate tastes like chocolate-covered espresso beans. 
  • Pear Nutmeg chocolate highlights Double Oaked’s fruit, floral, and spice flavors. It brings out the sharp cedar, pepper spice and the dark raisin character of the bourbon.
  • Oak Smoked Salt Caramel chocolate pairs with the wood, spice, and sweet aromatic flavors of Double Oaked. The smoked salt makes the mouth water, followed by herbal tea and tobacco notes and a dry cocoa finish.
  • Maple Pecan chocolate complements Double Oaked’s grain, wood, and sweet aromatic notes. The chocolate highlights sweet brown sugar and maple notes, as well as the sweet oak and nutty pecan, almond, and walnut flavors of the bourbon.

“The flavors in bourbon are so complimentary to the flavors in chocolate, so partnering with Woodford Reserve was a perfect match,” said Grahm. “ I don’t think there’s another bourbon and chocolate pairing that is truly as perfect and in sync as Double Oaked and the chocolate truffles we’ve created.”

The limited edition Compartés x Woodford Reserve Double Oaked bundle includes a 750ml of Woodford Reserve Double Oaked and four-piece chocolate box. It is available for $87.94 exclusively on Reserve Bar. They’re also available at large and small retailers nationwide and at Woodford Reserve Distillery.
