Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Peru Theme Week.
This Peru Ucayali 80% bar was from White Label Chocolate (Santa Cruz, CA)

This ultra dark bar had a balanced, complex and interesting tasting art. The chocolate had a slight green aroma, dark chocolate fudge-y and earth notes, with hints of dried fruit.

There was a very slight graininess in the tail end, but the texture was smooth otherwise.

The cacao used to make this bar was grown in Peru from a 2016 Harvest. The Ucayali region is in the Amazon rainforest area of inland Peru.
