Aroma: caramelly, honey, butter and brown sugar, walnut skin, toast
Flavor: Pleasant and sweet. Distinct light honey flavor, also candy corn and chocolate buttercream frosting. A little molasses, raisin, dark caramelly flavors like that. Pumpkin pie spice. Hint of ginger? Hint of green, some creaminess. Maybe like custard apple – that creamy, sweet, acidic, slightly granular taste and texture.
Recommendation: Recommended. A lovely flavor with good complexity. If you like dark chocolate a bit sweeter (or are trying to bring someone over to the dark side!), you’ll love this well-made, flavorful bar.

Peru Gran Blanco 66%
Aroma: floral, maple syrup
Flavor: A nectar-like sweetness. Peach candy, raspberry syrup, marzipan, raisins, molasses, fig jam, fig newtons, medium acidity – pomegranate, red fruit, very pleasant, accentuates the fruitiness, a slight tanginess
Recommendation: Recommended. Lovely delicate fruit flavors. I just wish it were slightly less sweet because the cacao is really nice and I’d like to taste it a little more intensely.
