Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and the Philippines Theme Week.
Today's Philippines Kablon Farms 74% (bar) was from White Label Chocolate (Santa Cruz, CA*).
The chocolate maker used (Trinitario variety) cacao from Kablon Farms to make this three-ingredient dark chocolate.
Aroma notes for today's 74% cacao chocolate included: rich, deep chocolate (drinking chocolate, chocolate malt) and subtle brown sugar.
The chocolate flavors were balanced with faint, fleeting herbal; bright, diffuse, natural (fruit, light spice, brown sugar) sweetness; and last but certainly not least, satisfying true chocolate (rich hot chocolate, chocolate malt) notes--that extended into the finish.
Maker's tasting notes: "Deep rich chocolate, brown sugar, slightly nutty"
Ingredients: "Cacao Bean, Organic Sugar, Organic Cocoa Butter"
