The bar is thick and the snap is strong. Deep brown color and different wood style mold.
The melt is ok. Coarse texture. The cool start mouthfeeling develops in a rich dark warming tasting experience. The scents are sweet and floral. The flavor is the opposite: deep and complex. Figs and stone fruit. Smores (with honey graham crackers). The finish is driven by strong licorice aroma. Maybe too much for my palate. A bit of astringency at the bottom of the throat and sweet anise spicy notes on the tip and on the sides of your tongue.
PS: this bar was gifted to me by a beloved friend of mine, Genevieve, for my birthday. Thank you!
