This is one of the first bar I purchased on Bar & Cocoa and it is also one of my favorite of all time. I also support barrel aged method rather than inclusion. I find it less invasive giving just the right sophisticated touch to the chocolate flavor profile. The "whiskey" aroma and flavor is subtle yet distinctive. The only side notes for me is the cacao blend. I prefer inclusion/barrel-aged matched with a specific origin!
If you like the way that chocolate and liquor tastes can go together SO WELL, then this is a bar that you need to try. You can definitely taste the whiskey in this bar. Where other whiskey bars can leave you wondering where the whiskey flavor was, it’s definitely here, but doesn’t overpower. Ritual chocolate is some of my favorite and they did an excellent job of processing this bar to complement their chocolate. The smokey oak flavors and honey notes of the chocolate come through quite nicely.
I am very hesitant to try any kind of flavored bars, because so often the additions overpower the cacao itself. Not so here, where the barrel aging contributes wood and vanilla complexity without losing the richness and bright lemon notes of the chocolate. Rich and satisfying, highly recommended. I gave this as a gift and it was well received - classy and perfect for Father's Day, birthdays, etc.

Collection title: Ritual Chocolate
Collection description: Ritual Chocolate, based in Utah, owned by Robbie Stout and Anna Davies are masters at balancing sugar and cacao. This sophisticated chocolate maker only uses those two ingredients to make their chocolate, with no added soy, butter or vanilla. We appreciate Ritual for their purposeful variations in cacao percentage from harvest to harvest to produce the best tasting chocolate. Ritual is crafted on European methods with an American style. Their journey began back in 2008 in Boulder, Colorado, both cyclists, they noticed that both coffee and cycling companies focused on cyclists. They wondered why and sampled over 20 different cups of coffee with an expert. Robbie was surprised to learn how every cup tastes different due to the roast and where it was grown. From there they learned about terroir and thought well, everyone is doing coffee; why not chocolate! They already ate a little pieces of chocolate every night after dinner, it was their ‘ritual’. Robbie and Anna spent the following years in Costa Rica after taking ownership of an old chocolate factory. They meticulously studied the craft of chocolate, reading every manual on machinery and everything in between. Their attention to detail and dedication has really demonstrated through their award winning chocolate bars.
