Tasting Notes: This bar is made from Nacional cacao beans from Ecuador. The cacao comes from plantations on the Guayas River flood-plain (hence the name) where the trees are old and enormous and the cacao is still pure after so many generations. This is an incredibly smooth bar that fills your mouth with complex flavors. While it is tempting to chew, allowing it to melt will reveal blackberry, molasses, cedar and green banana with a slight tannin finish.

Beautiful bar, aroma, and tasty.
Amano makes chocolate that is bewitching and as close to paradisiacal as it gets - flavor, texture, aroma, well compensated farmers.. all the bonus points. This bar is my particular favorite - I adore rich chocolate flavor; in particular the notes of walnut, blackberry and smoke. I also love the slightly grainier texture of this bar versus Amano's usual high gloss mouthfeel - I think it adds a brownie-like special something that enhances this bars exceptionality.
Great tasting experience full of flavors! It deserves to be tried.
The striking brown color defines the flawlessness of the classic mold enriched with the "Amano Chocolate Maker" signatures. Nice snap. Full vanilla-chocolate aroma supplemented by faint sweet dark fruits fragrance. Warm mouthfeel. The creamy texture is accompanied by grainy whole vanilla bean touch. Slow even melt. Strong and well-balanced flavor. The flavor profile is a gratifying development of "chocolate-vanilla Tartufo" notes matched by aromatic hints of smoke (vanilla beans), sweet slightly tart and earthy blackberry undertones closed off by feeble stainy taste with a tinge of sweetness (green bananas). In the mouth, the dense molasses presence combines warmth and smoothness and a long finish with an overall sense of incredible smoky-tart-sour balance.
Nice mix of flavors
