Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate, Dominican Republic and Haiti Theme Week.
Today's Dominican Republic Zorzal 70% Chocolate (bar) was made from bean to bar by Crow and Moss (Petoskey, MI).
The rich chocolate aroma had an inviting complex aroma with notes of fruit (ripe red fruit, cherries, raisin, dried plum), toffee brittle, a hint of maple spice and fleeting, very faint fresh green (grass).
The well-tempered chocolate broke with a hearty snap and flavors were similar to those mentioned above in the aroma, only with more chocolate (cocoa, brownie), and a very faint, balanced, fermented milk/cream note.
The maker's tasting notes read as follows: "cherry, caramel, spice"
Ingredients: Dominican Reserve Zorzal cacao beans, organic cane sugar
