It’s October, and you know what that means: costumes, decorations, and, of course, candy. You don’t have to be a kid to know a Halloween treat when you see one, especially when it’s a delicious pairing of chocolate and sherry. We’ve put together a quick guide for this month’s sweetest combinations – so sit back, pour a glass, and unwrap some unbelievable flavors.
Pedro Ximénez San Emilio + Twix
Sweet, velvety, and soft on the palate, Pedro Ximénez enhances the milk chocolate and caramel in a Twix with its full-bodied flavor.
Oloroso Don Nuño + Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
The classic peanut butter flavor in a Reese’s Cup is the perfect platform for Oloroso to shine, with nutty, toasty flavors, and an intense aftertaste.
Amontillado Los Arcos + Almond Joy
The rich, nutty flavors of Amontillado Los Arcos acquired through years of ageing make it a perfect pair for milk chocolate and almonds.
East India Solera + 3 Musketeers
Sweet, yet bold flavors in this blend of Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez match the smooth nougaty taste of a 3 Musketeers.
