Tasting Experience
From the first gasp of air escaping when opening the wrapper, this chocolate is strong and special. Over the main tabacco / smoky flavor, there are strong spicy notes engulfed in dried fruit aromas, reminiscent of jut bag. Then, while the silky texture melts in the mouth, light cherry sensations can be identified enhancing the ever present chocolate aroma. The after taste is consistently strong in smoky scents and cacao flavor with a hint of low bitterness on the finish. Overall an excellent and rare chocolate that will please discerning tasters who appreciate smoky cacao.
