Bolivia Beniano 70%

 

Aroma: Very soft anise, wintergreen, starch, slightly astringent

 

Flavor: Classic creamy and mellow Bolivian flavors – vanilla, marshmallow, corn masa, rice pudding, atole, blue corn. The flavor develops and releases soft red fruit and dark fruit flavors – blackberries, plum as well as soft spice notes - licorice, root beer. Some smooth, rich chocolate flavors emerge a bit more at the end – fudge, brownie. Sweet and slightly nutty – almost like the filling of peanut butter cups. A melting texture like butter mints.

 

Recommendation: Highly recommended.
