Tasting Experience
Invoking the great Venezuelan cacao heritage creates expectations that this bar does not meet. Opening the aluminium foil does not reveal a lot of aromas. A clear but weak chocolate flavor with hints of tobacco. While melting in the mouth the very fine texture continues with the same pleasant bu weak sensations but with hints of fruitiness and sweetness (sugar). The after taste is not short but more sweet than chocolatey. No bad sensations, but weak ones. Overall, a vey gentle cacao experience.
This bar is
Very good
