Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Vietnam Theme Week.
Today's Dak Lak*, Vietnam (The Origin Project) 70% Cacao (bar) was from Stone Grindz Chocolate (Tucson, AZ).
Aroma notes for this subtle yet flavorful dark chocolate included: chocolate (very attractive cocoa; very faint and balanced cacao fermentation; "barely there" sour milk/yogurt; and very gentle bitterness).
The texture and melt were creamy and almost silky smooth.
Flavor notes in this well-executed Vietnam chocolate included: very pleasing rich cocoa, and very faint diffuse fruit, spice and botanical that all unfolded beautifully as the chocolate melted in my mouth.
Loved the subtle complexity and balance; and it wasn't too sweet.
Ingredients: Organic cacao beans, organic cacao butter, organic cane sugar
