Maker: Cacaosuyo (Lima, Peru)
Price: $6.50/70g (La Esquina Verde)
Overall Rating: 8/10
Munch Factor: 7/10
Ingredients: Organic Peruvian Cacao, Organic Cane Sugar
Appearance: Eight-squared mold with geometric pattern on the top and a medium brown color.
Smell: Sweet honey, raisin, and light red wine.
The Melt & Snap: beautiful melt & strong snap.
Taste: Honey with some woodiness, then deep molasses, so much so that I had to check the package to make sure the bar was made with regular cane sugar, and some complex but light fruits at the end; long sweet finish.
Complaints & Complements: This is just a wonderful bar. I truly wish I had bought five or more bars by this maker, because I recall that the other bar I tried by them was also wonderful. They also won an International Chocolate Award for this bar.
Context: Sitting in my chair in my climate-controlled house in the US.
