Sarotti Tiamo Feinste Truffel

Sarotti Tiamo Feinste Truffel

Sarotti Tiamo Feinste Truffel

The box contained 32 truffles with 5 alcoholic flavours at a humble price of $24.90. The five flavours included Marc De Champagne, Truffel-Praline Gepudert, Bourbon Vanille, Ameratto and Cognac-Sahne. The chocolate was not of premium quality but the alcoholic flavoured fillings made up for it. The alcoholic centre in all the chocolates was a soft thick gooey creamy paste. In particular, the alcohol in the Marc De Champagne, Truffel-Praline Gepudert, Ameratto and Cognac-Sahne were very strong to our satisfaction. The Bourbon Vanille was disappointing though, as the sweetness and the milkiness of the vanilla overpowered  the milk chocolate and Bourbon. Costing less than a buck per piece, this was a very value for money alternative to alcoholic pralines from brands like Jewels and Wimbly Lu, that is if we were to close an eye to the freshness of the chocolate.

  2. USD 24.90? Totallly overpriced! In Germany, Sarott is a “low-end” brand! Maybe, they are selling are different product as “bourbon vanilla” in other countries, but in Germany the “bourbon vanilla” chocolates are without alcohol, the word “bourbon” refers to the vanilla, not to whiskey!

  3. […] from Leonidas. We were expecting Leonidas’ liquer pralines to be similar to that of Sarotti’s, with a alcoholic thick gooey centre. Sadly, it was far from expectations. The moment we bit into […]
