Palo Santo wood, renowned for its fragrant essential oils, is actually native to the forests of coastal Ecuador. It grows wild in the very same province in which To’ak was born. Our most fragrant edition of To’ak chocolate aged with this powerfully aromatic wood has a profoundly exotic flavor profile, to say the least...
Nose: Citrusy pine, touch of mint.
Palate: Opens with sweet resinous wood, coconut, mint and lemon peel, stewed dates and fresh pine on the back-end.
Finish: Coffee, dates, and pine.
Añejo tequila (eg. Don Julio) and Zacapa Rum 23 are arguably our top choices. Generally pairs well with a broad range of whiskies (from Speyside and Islay to American Rye and Japanese), of which some of our favorites include Aberlour 16 Year, “The Chita” single grain whisky from Suntory, and Laphroaig’s Four Wood. As always, Pedro Ximenez Sherry never fails.
Ingredients: 80.5% Cacao beans, cane sugar
Variety: Heirloom Nacional
