Vanuatu is a difficult vanilla bean to find, it has a flavor profile that is unlike any other bean. The aroma and taste is reminiscent of ginger, nutmeg and hints of cinnamon and sandalwood. These beans are plump, dark and rich in oils. Light spirits would be best for extracting these beans, I have put mine in Cognac.
I used these beans to make vanilla extract. I'll find out how it turns out in a year!
