Ah, the Sambirano was quite tart, which I like, but I think the flavor profile of the 75g Madagascar matched the tartness much better than Sambirano’s. I tasted peanuts in Sur del Lago, which I thought was quite a lovely surprise, because as I’m a Southern boy, I’ve become quite partial to peanuts hehe. So call me biased [:D] Rio Caribe has explosive flavors that change rapidly and left me almost confused and bewildered by its complexity. Cherries, almonds, cashews, alcohol, vanilla, tart fruits, wow! Give me more. [:D]

well, i’d agree, but the madagascar has something i can’t put my finger on. something that tastes a bit weird in the tartness. almost artificial and almost metallic. that’s as close as i can get to describing it and even that is off by a shot.

i once discovered peanuts in puertofino, immediately marking it as a fave. i figure u like reese’s too, eh?
do you know cowgirl chocolates? they don’t make chocolate bars as such, but have some nice truffle bars with hot pepper and peanut butter.

The Madagascar, imo, tastes heavily of alcohol, vodka to be exact. That might be the flavor you describe. It’s quite dominant and assertive and sent me to the moon when I tasted it along with the tart fruits. Puertofino does have that nutty flavor to it, as does Carupano. That’s probably why I love those two so much. I think Domori had my flavor preferences in mind when making their chocolates because I simply love them all hehe. You too, alex; I think we have similar tastes.

yes yes yes! i can finally get my hands on all of the crus here in munich and dug in this weekend.
great to finally taste the new set w/o vanilla and lecithin. the rio caribe and esmeraldas were knockout class! if you lean towards nacional then esmeraldas is the best imo. just by a hint, but still the best (you know i favor domori so i am not unbiased). pralus has a nice nacional bar as well, much justice done too. yet i prefer the purity of domori. the bean and the cane sugar. nothing else.
