A box of milk chocolate pralines made of Lubeca milk chocolate with silky smooth creamy filling of Ardbeg Ten, 46% vol.
Unique pralines that combine the spicy, sweet, and smoky taste of an iconic whisky with the well balanced, smooth taste of milk Lubeca chocolate.
When you bite into this praline, a burst of intense smoky fruit coming from the creamy Ardbeg Ten filling escapes into your mouth. Sweet notes of peat infused with zesty lemon and lime, wrapped in waxy creamy milk chocolate. Subtle notes of menthol and black pepper slice through the sweet smoke followed by tarry ropes and graphite. Waxed lemon and lime follows with coal tar soap, beeswax and herby pine woodlands. Toasted vanilla and sizzling cinnamon simmer with warm hazelnut and almond toffee. Then, an explosion of crackling peat sets off millions of consecutive flavor explosions as the praline slowly melts — peat effervesces with tangy lemon and lime juice, black pepper pops with sizzling cinnamon-spiced toffee. Then comes a wave of brine infused with smooth buttermilk, ripe bananas and currants. Smoke gradually wells up on the palate bringing a mouthful of warm creamy cappuccino and toasted marshmallows. As the taste lengthens and deepens, dry espresso, liquorice root and tarry smoke develop coating the palate with chewy peat oils.
A great praline not only for the Ardbeg 10 lovers but for anyone who enjoys smoky drams.
The pralines are delivered in a handmade square wooden box of 9 or 16 chocolates (each chocolate weighs about 11 g).
These absolutely amazing pralines are ideal for your own personal enjoyment, or as a gift for friends, family, chocolate and whisky connoisseurs.
The Special Filling
Ardbeg Ten is a true classic from Islay. For peat lovers, Ardbeg 10 Year Old is probably the ultimate single malt on the market, and the one that will bring many connoisseurs to choose Ardbeg is their favorite distillery. A whirlwind of peat and complex malty flavors. It’s easy to see why this is so popular – spicy, sweet, and above all, smoky. A great dram, well balanced, and with a lot going on.
Nose: A ridge of vanilla leads to mountain of peat capped with citrus fruits and circled by clouds of sea spray. Sweet peat, coal, Caramac bars, a faint floral soapy note, pepper and chilli.
Palate: Sweet vanilla counterbalanced with lemon and lime followed by that surging Ardbeg smoke that we all know and love. Very soft, mellow entry, then the spices and peat come through in a big way. Powerful, but with a balancing sweetness. Great length.
Finish: Long and warming, with the smoke and pepper lasting longest. Glorious with sea salted caramel and beach bonfire smoke.
