Welcome to Day #13 of Chocolate and Hispaniola Theme Weeks, featuring chocolates made with cacao grown in the Dominican Republic and the Republic of Haiti.
Today's Haiti 70% (bar) was made from Produits des Iles S.A. (PISA) cacao that was roasted and handcrafted into bars by Triangle Roasters in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The aroma contained subtle, sweet dark chocolate--and diffuse, naturally sweet berry (blackberry, blueberry)--notes.
The bar's flavor had a naturally sweet dark chocolate taste (almost vanilla, but there was vanilla added). The perceived sweetness also arrived in the form of diffuse fruit (dried grape, ripe (sweet, faintly earthy) dark berries (blueberry, blackberry)) notes. The finish was fairly clean and subtle.
Maker's tasting notes: "Vanilla, blueberry, floral"
Ingredients: Organic cacao, organic cane sugar
