Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Honduras Theme Week.

Today's Honduras Wampusirpi 100% Dark bar was from Wm. Chocolate (Madison, WI).

Described as "Nutty and Intense," this chocolate had a slightly waxy melt and thick creamy texture, influenced by the surrounding cold weather.

This was ultra-dark chocolate had a pleasing and well-balanced uniform light bitterness (think hops, walnuts and/or certain very dark berries). This one-ingredient* chocolate would make a fine "every day" 100 percent-er. It was flavorful and bold, without being overpowering.

I was ready to order more from the Wm. Chocolate website, but it looks like this bar might have already sold out. A pity really. But, that's the way it is with small batch, artisan chocolate sometimes.

The chocolate maker's tasting notes read: "walnut, elderberry, gruyere"

*Ingredients: "cocoa beans"
