Today's "Trinchera 74% (cacao), 48 hour traditional conche, Las Trincheras, Venezuela" bar was from Idilio Origins GmbH Premium Swiss Chocolate (Basel, Switzerland).
This bar had a pleasant chocolately aroma and flavor with faint balanced earth, green, nutty and fruit notes.
Maker's tasting notes read: ripe banana; mild, earthy notes; and tropical wood; a wisp of vanilla.
Yes, vanilla. So true. I missed that. The ingredients list: cocoa, cane sugar and cocoa butter. No vanilla listed. But the flavor note was there.
