Dick Taylor - Black Fig
In true brash hipster American style Dick Taylor's bars blast you with blaring flavors from start to finish. However, the flavors stay clean and pure through all their length. If Amedei is a chocolate symphony, Dick Taylor is chocolate's Led Zeppelin. They are among a handful of American greats with a style all their own.
Figs and chocolate are an underappreciated match. Fruity Madagascar 72% chocolate gets some textural and flavor play from chopped dried black mission figs. Pair with an oloroso sherry.
