There are better chocolates then Ghirardelli but Ghirardelli does deliver some pretty good chocolate for just a little more then the mass market crap like Hershey's.

I find the stronger Islays don't go very well, too peaty.

I've been partial to the 15 yo Dalwhinnie with it.

With whisk(e)y, only aging in the barrel is considered. It stops changing once it is bottled.

Dalwhinie 15 year, of whatever date, is great.

I can't even touch milk chocolate anymore. The stuff is sickeningly sweet. Dark chocolate is sooo wonderful, though more than 70% and it begins to taste like coffee grounds to me.

Spend all that money on high-quality Whisky, yet not willing to fork out for decent chocolate eh? Ghillardelli, if it's anything like its mother comany Lindt's other products, is shit.

A decent Amedei, Michel Cluizel, La Molina, Valrhona, Domori or Callebaut, on the other hand... Domori has this one criollo with a real subtle tobacco flavour that should work well with scotch.

Not really a big fan of Ghiardelli. Godiva has a dark chocolate truffle I love, though.

Godiva is more of a high end chocolate compared to Ghirardelli top of the middle if you know what I mean.

I never tire of how you instantly become a pretentious snob at the drop of the hat.

If you'll read this thread again, none of the whisky-side of this thread mentioned any chocolate brands.

The chocolate I eat with my whisky is Bernard Callebaut. Do some research on that brand, and you'll probably not be surprised.

I still have a Ghirardelli hot coco mix from 1999 which an ex girlfriend gave me. I guess I'm not a coco fan.

Cocoa is one of those things that don't improve with age.

considering I have a barrel-like belly, will it keep on aging, once I gulped it?
