Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Virtual Caribbean Cruise Theme Week.

Today's 58% Trinidad Dark Milk (Batch: Jun 2023/71.1 bar) was from Spinnaker Chocolate (Seattle, WA).

Aroma notes included: dark milk chocolate (cocoa, milky/buttery caramel).

Texture: creamy texture, melt and mouthfeel.

Flavor notes included: dark milk chocolate with butter, caramel; and very faint sweet fruit-floral (vanilla; flowers (very muted butterfly pea flower and almost undetectable rose); and very faint, balanced, aromatic pepper in the finish.

I loved the cream and caramel notes (and creamy texture), as well as the traces of other, almost floral-fruit nuances in this bar. It was borderline addictive. At least two people I shared this bar with were converted from dark chocolate only lovers to dark milk fans. 

Sadly this Trinidad bar is not currently available; however, other single origin dark milks are listed for sale on the Spinnaker website. Hoping today's bar will return in the future. 

Ingredients: Cacao, Organic Cane Sugar, Dried Milk, Cocoa Butter

Allergen-related information: Contains: Milk.
