Vintage Plantations 65% Dark Rancho San Jacintho Harvest, Ecuador

January 3, 2009 - chocolate

We found this chocolate to be dry on the start, a little too sweet and not enough complexity on the mouthfeel. I expected a little more from this, Ecuadorian-sourced organic chocolate, but I have to be careful about this to not give the wrong impression: this is definitely an above-average chocolate, but I expected a little more complexity to the flavor. The sweetness (cane sugar) lingered, but not any other notes in the cocoa spectrum – maybe the tiniest hint of cherry or berry, but very difficult to distinguish above the general, even nuttiness.
