Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Hispaniola Theme Weeks, featuring chocolates made with Dominican cacao this week.
Today's 51% Negro Con Leche (51% Cacao Dark with Milk bar) was from Cacaoteca S.R.L., the only chocolate maker this week to be based in the Dominican Republic.
This dark milk chocolate bar had a very pleasing aroma--one that encompasses a blend of nutty, faint earth, slight savory, and chocolate notes. (Sea salt brownie and milk anyone?) The milk (powder) contributed a creamy, smooth texture.
The flavors were also very pleasing with chocolate, a slight spike of earth, smooth nut, very faint savory, diffuse fruit sweetness and creamy milk notes.
