High Coast 63 with Chocisky chocolate

Was pairing some really good Swedish whisky, High Coast 63 with some dark chocolate from Chocisky.
High Coast Distillery is located at 63 ° N, it is one of the world’s northernmost whiskey distilleries. Just where the 63rd latitude cuts through one of our warehouse #3, we have stored this smoky, unique bottling for 63 months.

The whisky is a 63% abv and has a ppm of 63.
And has matured in 63 liter casks 63 decimeter above ground.

Because of the high proof the chocolate from chocisky takes away the burns and adds a more round taste with some sweetness combined with the well balanced smoky finish.
The whisky is fenomenal and I recommend all of you to try it!
