Ever clever & still ever clear. Ever the truth-seeker / truth teller, Domori extends his purist / minimalist tendencies to proclaim vanilla added to cacáo makes a ‘flavored’ bar. (Will zealots decrying the U.S. FDA allowing bars containing vegetable oil to be labeled ‘chocolate’ also crusade against vanilla?) One of the best disguised Madagascars on the market has its own ingeniousness – fronting for what that island is most famous: producing & supplying half the world’s other bean - vanilla.
Appearance   3.8 / 5
Color: light brown & orange drop
Surface: careless & hasty
Temper: high polish
Snap: falling dominos
Aroma   9 / 10
radial vanilla, underlying (almost milk-) chocolate essence / coconut, green mango -> puff of tobacco & spruce top
Mouthfeel   13.2 / 15
Texture: smooth, no granulated sugar grit common to this %; medium bodied...
Melt: languishing yet wet
Flavor   45.7 / 50
the twin flames - vanilla & chocolate – take center stage flanked by tobacco / juniper -> white currant turns juicy pineapple -> mounting switchblade acidity almost tips alcholic but blunted & modulated by spiced tobacco (vanilla) -> chocolate-mango bangs met by floral ylang w/ darkened mahogany counter -> clears chocolate/coconut cream & jackfruit; backtracks to currant in aft-length
Quality   19 / 20
Sweeter, stronger, more substantial version of Amedei’s stunning yet elusive Madagascar. As much as vanilla grabs the spotlight, the 1/3-ton invisible gorilla is the felt presence of sugar removing the brassiness often found in this origin.
