LAS VEGAS (May 2017) – The world’s tallest observation wheel, the High Roller at The LINQ Promenade, introduces a new, booze-infused selection of chocolate pieces for its indulgent Chocolate Tasting Experience. Crafted by Ethel M Chocolates, these delectable bonbons contain crème fillings spiked with real flavored liqueurs. Guests can savor four distinctive pieces, along with a glass of wine, while enjoying the best views of Las Vegas from 550 feet in the air. During the 30-minute rotation in a glass-enclosed, climate-controlled cabin, an Ethel M chocolatier ambassador discusses the origins of chocolate and how the pieces were created, all while educating guests on aroma, taste and texture.
Liqueur-filled chocolates include:
Milk Chocolate Amaretto Crème Liqueur: almond, cocoa and vanilla notes with tastes of apricot, caramel and vanilla
Milk Chocolate Coffee Crème Liqueur: coffee notes accompanied by espresso, cooked milk, caramel and vanilla flavors
Dark Chocolate Bourbon Crème Liqueur: roasted, cocoa and espresso/coffee notes flavors of oak, tobacco, roasted cocoa and coffee
Dark Chocolate Irish Crème Liqueur: milk/dairy, roasted cocoa and vanilla notes paired with tastes of molasses, cooked milk, chocolate, caramel and vanilla

There, they receive a voucher for a complimentary glass of wine, which may be picked up in the Sky Lounge prior to boarding. With glass in hand, guests then board the observation wheel to begin their journey through the delectable world of Ethel M Chocolates’ sweet creations.
