Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and New Mexico Theme Week.
Today's 73% Dark Chocolate small bar was from The Chocolate Cartel, handmade in Albuquerque, NM.
This bar* had a nice sheen/shine, and a dark chocolate aroma with faint roasted coffee/acidic notes. The flavor was bold and dark with earth and nut notes. (It was not as acidic as expected based on aroma, which was fine.)
The melt was even and texture was relatively smooth. And the chocolate had a lingering finish with chocolate, roasted, and nut notes, and a very slight astringency one could feel in the throat.
