Tasting Notes from the Curator

El Almendro’s exquisite confectionery range sings of centuries-old Spanish craftsmanship with each bite. The product invites the palate to a jubilant dance; the nutty Almond aroma is elevated through intricate roasting processes, whispering of sun-bathed Mediterranean groves. The Chocolate Caramel Almond Turrón Sticks intrigue with sweet smoky caramel notes while the Crunchy Almond Turrón and Milk Chocolate Almond Cubits are redolent with deeply satisfying Woody Notes. The symphony of taste commences with a clear Sweetness, serenaded by the Nutty Undertones derived from varietal almonds that carry whispers of the rich Valencian soil in their very essence. The Chocolate and Caramel flavors conduct an opulent resonance, further entwined with the delicate audacity of White Chocolate and Raspberry Almond Cubits. Texture plays a magnificent role, with the Crunchiness of the traditional turrones contrasting dramatically against the Chewiness and Creaminess one finds nestled within the unique compositions. El Almendro’s confections don’t just offer a treat; they proffer an audible cultural hum, encapsulating the jubilant spirit of jolly festivities.

Pairings & Suggestions

  • Coffees and Espumas: Spark new dimensions with an intriguing tussle of taste between almond confections and the bittersweet embrace of high-quality espresso.
  • Fine Wines and Spirits: Usher in a gentle coalescence with the voluptuous sweetness of dessert wines, finding the harmony between sultry nights and the candor of chocolate.
  • Cheese Assortments: A chessboard of cheese allows the earnest flavor of these Spanish indulgences to boldly checkmate partnering flavors.

Jijona’s Heart in Sweet Repose

The heart of Jijona, the Spanish nougat capital, beats within every piece of El Almendro’s turrones, entwining centuries of confectionery art into social fabric. Each confection is an ode to the Mediterranean climate that fosters almond cultivation, an agricultural craft that has cradled the local economy upon the tendrils of sweet delights and exported across seas to over 85 countries. It’s a tale of harmony as El Almendro’s sweets weave into the essence of festivity, embedding themselves as ritualistic elements that transcend mere confectionery; they are offerings to family tradition and cultural affinity.

Storage Instructions

To withhold the splendor of El Almendro’s opuses, ensure a soliloquy of storage—cool, with the dire absence of light and excess humidity. A cupboard or pantry away from the ingress of sunlight and kitchen fervor suffices.
