Sixth Course is a local chocolatier, sourcing their chocolate from Guittard. They make beautiful shinny chocolates, primarily caramels or boozy ones. Lots of amazing sounding chocolates. I wish I got to try more!
- Smoked salt caramel: “Rich caramel seasoned with Alderwood smoked salt in a dark chocolate shell” . Ingredients: 61% dark chocolate, organic cream, organic butter, pure cane sugar, smoked Alderwood salt, 31% white chocolate. Tasting notes: Smooth, shiny dark chocolate and white chocolate swirled thin shell, filled with liquid caramel. Very, very gooey. Did not pick up on saltiness, nor alderwood flavor, but there was a flavor in there that I didn’t particularly care for. Chocolate not particularly interesting.
- Ceylon cinnamon caramel: “An exotic blend of spicy Ceylon Cinnamon infused caramel in a milk chocolate shell.” Ingredients: 38% milk chocolate, organic cream, pure cane sugar, organic butter, Ceylon cinnamon. Tasting notes: Thin milk chocolate shell, filled with smooth gooey caramel. Caramel has a really strong cinnamon flavor. Nicely balanced, not too sweet, quite nice.
- Bailey’s & cream: “Whipped milk chocolate ganache spiked with Bailey's in a milk chocolate shell”. Ingredients: 38% milk chocolate, 61% dark chocolate, organic cream, organic butter, Bailey's Irish Cream, glucose. Tasting notes: Don’t taste baileys at all. Mediocre milk chocolate shell. Ganache not very smooth.
