As with the majority of Christmas specialities, this torta imperial is predominantly made of almonds and honey combined to give a rich, crunchy sweet.
Using the indigenous Marcona almond and combining it with one of their specialist honeys the producer has made a totally delicious nut brittle.
This product has been awarded with 1 star in the Great Taste Awards 2016. The judges' comments were:
"The copious quantity of almonds is well toasted and fresh. This has a rustic, home-made appearance. It eats with a good crunch and the toasted almond flavour comes through very well."

Mels Alemany is located in the tiny mountain village Os de Balaguer in the west of Catalonia. The large areas of uncultivated land make it ideal for the production of honeys such as wild thyme and rosemary and they select other varieties from different regions of Spain.
