Aromatic Complexity

The nose of The Chocolate Block is dark, intense, and brooding. It reveals aromas of black cherries, cardamom, and sweet tobacco. Espresso and subtle whiffs of perfume add further complexity. These scents blend harmoniously, creating a rich and inviting bouquet.

Rich Palate Experience

Cloves and liquorice add depth to the taste. Each sip reveals new layers, making every moment of tasting a unique experience.

Focused Mid-Palate
