Vanilla Beans

Bourbon Madagascar & Tahitian Vanilla Beans

Tahitian on the Right, Bourbon Madagascar on the Left

The Tahitian beans have a distinctively floral quality that is downright perfume-y.  The smell is addictive.  But, at first scent, it seems the floral characteristics might not mingle as easily with other flavors.  The Bourbon Madagascar are lighter and fruitier.  There is the scent of raisins and other deep dark dried fruit scents lingering in the background.  And, they’re super fresh, soft, and very plump.

It will be fun experimenting with these.
