Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate and Uganda Theme Week.

Today's Rwenzori Forest, Uganda 75% (2020 Harvest) bar was produced by La Feverie (Bordeaux, France).

Rich, dark, complex aroma and flavor notes included: concentrated, almost earthy, dried fruit (roasted green banana), honey, roasted figs and cherries, faint dried apricot--and a very faint, fleeting white floral note far into the finish.

The balanced ultra-dark flavor(s) were neither too bitter nor too acidic. And the 75% cacao choice (vs. the standard 70%) was quite nice. This Hasnaa offering could have passed for 80% cacao chocolate, and was more interesting (and less sweet) than most 70% bars.

Hasnaa Chocolats (maker's) tasting notes: "Fresh and tangy tannin, blooming in a fleshy and enveloping sweetness with slightly smoky notes of cherry, apricot, and liquorice."

Ingredients: Organic cacao beans and organic cane sugar

Allergen-related information: (None listed on package.)
