Bottle of Buffalo Trace Bourbon
Buffalo Trace Bourbon Gets A Boost With Spicy Chocolate
For an unexpected yet perfect chocolate and bourbon pairing, choose items with flavor chemistry, such as sweet spiced Buffalo Trace bourbon and spicy chili chocolate.
This duo is a classic example of sweet meets heat, playing the spicy chili chocolate against Buffalo Trace’s notes of vanilla, brown sugar, and molasses.
The spicy chocolate tempers the bourbon’s sweeter side while highlighting the bourbon's spiced notes from cinnamon to its subtle oaky flavor.
To enhance the sweeter notes, try spicy milk chocolate. To lean into the spice, choose spicy dark chocolate, which will temper the sweet bourbon with its bitterness.
