Flavor profile: the initial impression is almond Irish cream liquor, then something unique and unexpectedly beautiful comes along... a sherry-like complexity such as biscuit, almond, and caramel viscous and amazingly sweet flavors. The gourmand mouthfeel is also filled with a remarkable sticky treacle delicatessen, vanilla, oak wood, and chocolatey gluttonous notes "walking" hand-in-hand with a juicy accent of cherry-flavored water in the background. In the finish, the palate is extremely light with authentic oak wood and a foretaste of ginger spice for just enough to sting the edge of the tongue.
The taste of this bar is a real contradiction for how easy it is to swallow and its overall stimulation. The back taste is particularly rich and a lot extended. The long aftertaste is harmonic and gives sensations of warmth and nobility. It is surely designed for sophisticated consumers with a sweet tooth.
Fruition conceived a way of working with the aromaticity of Bourbon Whiskey and flavorsome cocoa beans to bring you an appetizing and balanced "treat". All you have to do is enjoy it!
Values expressed in stars from 1 to 8. If the bar is extraordinarily close to perfection, I can go up to 10.
