Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Peru Theme Week.
Today's 70% Peru (bar) was from bean-to-bar maker Sol Cacao Craft Chocolate (Bronx, New York).
This bar had bolder flavors than some others made with Peruvian cacao this week. The dark, complex chocolate flavors spanned fruity (citrus, red berry) tart bitterness with balanced fermented milk, earth, and slightly green nut astringency notes and a very faint whisp of star anise. The bar had a lingering finish as well.
Maker's tasting notes for this bar (Batch #7A) read as follows: Sweet floral notes, almonds and walnut.
I find complex, balanced flavor profiles in chocolate interesting and satisfying. A small square is worth eating slowly, contemplating and enjoying. Thank you Maloney Brothers.
Ingredients: All this flavor came from just two ingredients: cacao (from Oro Verde, Peru) and cane sugar.
