This luscious bar is Dick Taylor’s first ever barrel aged milk chocolate! It’s sophisticated, elegant, decadent and comforting. It’s a rich, full-bodied, savor-worthy treat!
The fine folks over at Dick Taylor have a lot of patience! They aged cacao nibs in bourbon whiskey barrels from Sonoma Brothers Distilling for TWO WHOLE YEARS! That’s a long time! You see, cacao is like a sponge. It absorbs flavors and scents from its environment. Aging the cacao beans in bourbon barrels imparted a spectacular oaky aroma and infuses this bar with notes of dried cherries and a a layer of bourbon nuance that make it sing in glorious harmony.
A2/A2 organic whole milk from Alexandre Family Farm gives this chocolate a gorgeous mouthfeel with tasting notes of dulce de leche, toffee and vanilla.
Barometer Chocolate is delighted to offer just a few of these superior bars for the true chocolate connoisseur. An added bonus is that A2/A2 milk is often more easily digested and can be well-tolerated by those with lactose sensitivity.
Adam Dick and Dustin Taylor are friends who together created Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate in 2010. These two love to work with their hands and have a background in woodworking and boat building. The concept of "craft" has always been a guiding principle in their lives and they found themselves drawn to the similarity between building with wood and crafting artisanal chocolate directly from the bean.
Adam and Dustin continue to build their business and craft their chocolate in Eureka, California with the same values that inspired them years ago. Relying on the finest fairly-traded organic cacao and organic cane sugar, they are purists. Their goal is to capture and highlight the subtle flavor nuances in the cacao they source from all over the globe.
Dick Taylor is among the 13 favorite USA craft chocolate producers recognized in Melissa Clark's February 2020 New York Times article for the extra attention their team devotes to sourcing beans, forging positive relationships with growers and treating the planet with extra loving care.
