Prichard's Double Chocolate Bourbon
Don't think of this as a 'flavored bourbon.' Benjamin Prichard’s Double Chocolate Bourbon is a very serious 90-Proof Bourbon. Infused with cocoa nibs (from Nashville-based artisanal chocolatier Olive & Sinclair), it begins with much of the sweetness common to bourbon, but is balanced with the bitterness of the pure chocolate to produce a better-balanced bourbon, belying its 90-proof character.
Introducing the small quantity of chocolate into the finishing process is intended to influence and augment that natural hint of chocolate found in good bourbons. A conscious effort is made to not overpower the wonderful flavor of the bourbon but simply reinforce what's already there. The result is a rich and full-flavored bourbon whose natural chocolate flavors are subtly enhanced.
