For the 2019 Scotch and Chocolate pairing, we sampled 5 drams of whiskeys from various regions of Scotland. Each region has its own flavour profiles and unique distilling techniques that create a wide variety of Scotches. Here are all of the dram details...
The Macallan - 12 year old Double Casked is a Speyside Scotch DRAM 2
Kilchoman is made on the southernmost island of the Herbides, Islay DRAM 3
Glen Moray (Elgin Classic) is also a Speyside whiskey DRAM 4
Bruichladdich, The Classic Laddie, is also made on Islay DRAM 5
Dalwhinnie, Distillers Edition, is distilled in the Highlands
Certified Whiskey Sommelier, Steve Rae, led the pairings, examining each Scotch for its unique flavour profile. He carefully selected this year’s whiskeys to cover a range of distilleries from various areas of Scotland.Â
Each of the Scotches is available through the LCBO so you can recreate the pairings at home!
Candymaker, Christine Chessell from RTC, was on hand to present the chocolates for each pairing.Â
Working closely with Rae, the two selected pairings which dramatically enhance and sometimes even alter the flavour profiles of the whiskeys.Â
Zesty orange peel in velvety dark chocolate. Seasonally available in-store only.
NEW, lemon cream centre enrobed in semi sweet chocolate. Currently available only in-store.
Wow. Try the mint smoothies. You'll be amazed at how good these things are. I dare you to stop at one! They have hundreds of other great candies of all kinds. Worth a drive to Stratford just to visit an amazing small scale local landmark.

I live in Stratford and I have family who come to visit from the States and that's the first place they want to go when they come. I can honestly say that they are the best chocolates I've ever had. It's worth the trip!

Simply put, the best candy store Iâ€™ve ever been to. The mint smoothies are, in my opinion, practically perfect candy. Highly recommended.
