We will be interviewing Nom Nom artisan chocolate maker Liam Burgess in the next edition of Cymru Culture. Liam will be talking about how his business, NomNom Welsh Chocolate, began and his hopes and plans for the future. In the meantime, we have conducted a taste-test of some of his beautifully-tasting chocolate. Our panel of tasters all love chocolate, with tastes ranging across the spectrum - from white, to the richest and most bitter dark chocolate - so all tastes and preferences were covered.

 Sloe Gin:

 

"Although not being a fan of Gin, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this chocolate. It has a lovely subtle flavour, and again, beautiful quality chocolate" - Claire

Lovely high-coco taste, and a subtle sloe gin flavour.” - Taz

Chocolate; really dark and delicious.” - Hayley

 

Halen Môn Caramel:

 

"Stunning chocolate (which snaps beautifully), off-set by rich, salty caramel. A more grown-up version of a Cadbury's Caramel." - Claire

 

Chocolate flavour off-set by the smooth caramel, grown up chocolate, like Cadbury Caramel … very nice and proper dark.” – Hayley

The caramel works well with the dark chocolate. Lovely.” - Lucy

 

Blackberry Crumble:

 

"Great contrast between the blackberry flavour and the chocolate. I also liked the texture to the chocolate – very crumble like. Also, as with the raspberry and vodka bar, I loved the packaging." – Claire

I can taste the alcohol. The chocolate has a nice snap and very dark.” - Taz

The blackberry flavour comes through, also quite crumbly.” - Hayley

 

Brecon 5 Vodka and Raspberry:

 

"The first thing I noticed was the beautiful packaging, love the richly coloured pink foil, off-set by the brown paper sleeve. Really chic presentation and would not need wrapping if being given as a gift. Stunning contrast with the smooth raspberry filing and the choclate, reminded me of a more refined Turkish Delight. Very moorish." – Claire

 

This chocolate is not has heavy as others. You can taste both the raspberry and the vodka, but raspberry the strongest flavour.” – Taz

 "Delicious, really liked this" - Carol

Sweet taste of raspberry, delicious with the hint of vodka, my favourite.” – Hayley

This is lovely. You can really taste the raspberry.” - Lucy

 

Roasted Hazelnut:

 

"Without doubt one of my favourites. You can really taste the roasted nuts, which is a classic combination with chocolate. A more decandent and grown-up version of a Toblerone." – Claire

Concentrated chocolate … can taste the roasted nuts well.” - Taz

 "Really enjoyed this chocolate, nut flavour comes through" - Carol

Delicious and moreish.” - Dai
