Tasting Experience
The overwhelming aromas coming out when opening the elegant box and double inner foil is nutmeg. Then Ginger can be felt. While the somehow grainy texture melts in the mouth, these flavors are joined by notes of cinnamon. The cacao aroma takes a back stage but essential role in the delivery of these subtle sensations.This bar manages to avoid the common pitfall of spicy chocolate, which is to be so spicy that the chocolate does not exist. Here, the dosage is perfectly done to allow the nutmeg to enhance the cacao and then when its presence is weaker, the ginger takes over and finally the cinnamon. The after taste is mostly chocolatey and not spicy, which I consider a good thing. Overall this a very good bar. It will please slightly adventurous and experience taste buds that appreciate off the beaten track experiences.
This bar is
Very good
