Special Reserve, Whiskey
- 2019 Good Food Awards, Finalist
- 2019 Good Food Awards, Winner
We use 55 bottles of Boston Harbor Distillery’s distinctive “Putnam Rye Whiskey” to craft this Special Reserve chocolate, giving this bar an intense whiskey flavor like no other!
We start by steeping nibs from our award-winning Esmeraldas bar in whiskey for several days, which allows the nibs to absorb the complex flavor notes of the rye. Since chocolate and water don’t mix we then allow the nibs to dry completely before putting them in our stone grinders to create this incredible bar.For this bar we also fresh press our own single origin Esmeraldas cocoa butter. This exceptional step makes the bar exceedingly smooth & intensely flavorful… as well as truly single origin.

LOVE IT! I was hesitant to try this even though I've loved EVERY Goodnow bar I've ever had. But every other alcohol-flavored brand I've ever tasted has been a sweet, gooey mess that detracted from good chocolate instead of enhancing it. NOT THIS! This is done right. The beans themselves are infused with the liquor. There's nothing in the bar but amazing depth of flavor with a subtle presence of high-quality whiskey. This is the way a flavored bar should taste, and I'm a believer now. Maybe I'll even check out the Lawley's Rum bar next!
Buy and try. You'll never question "Why?".
Smooth, clear notes of the different flavors throughout, pure and refined. A terrific treat.
Like having a party for your mouth. Goodnow is the best...
DELICIOUS!! Goodnow Farms Chocolates are the best we’ve ever had.
