Luisa Abram bars never fail to wow the pants off of me. This one is stunning. Standard luxurious packaging. Nutty aroma. Velvety smooth bar with heady notes of dark caramel, woodsmoke, chestnut, subtle pineapple and yogurt.
Woah! What a distinct and unique flavor profile! The melt is a bit grainy but the complex flavors are so distracting and absorbing, I move past the texture quickly. There is a "what is that?!" flavor that must be the "chestnut notes." I get some burnt sugar/caramel that is nice. The taste is so complex, it is hard to stop. I also got another Luisa Abram bar and it is nothing like this so the distinctive flavors must be the unique bean and origin. A very fun bar to explore.
This chocolate is like a fine red wine - fruity and complex. I taste a hint of tart yogurt taste, which is a nice extra layer of flavor. This doesn’t melt smoothly in the mouth and has a bit of a rough finish texture on the tongue. The flavor notes that come through make this worth experiencing!

Collection title: Amelonado
Collection description: Amelonado is one of those ten evolutionarily unique types identified in 2008 using samples collected throughout the Americas over the previous century. This particular cluster type represents a traditional cultivar believed to have been domesticated from the Brazilian Amazon, possibly near what is now called the Para River. It’s now one of the most common cacao cultivars in the world, and often held up as the typical example of a forastero cacao: deeply chocolaty & bitter, with strong earthy undertones and a large, round pod. Most of the cacao brought to Africa in the 18th and 19th centuries originally came from this cultivar type, leading to the Ghanaian varietal now known as the West African Amelonado.
