Spiced Coconut Pecan
of its constituent parts, particularly cinnamon, then pecan… chocolate acts as a force-multiplier for the spices which, in addition to the actual added cardamon & vanilla, galvanizes a festive mix ala nutmeg, ginger, clove

Pangoa, Peru
cocoa powder, semi-tannic / semi-alkalized -> clarified white fruit (cocoplum / pitomba) -> turns purplish berry (mora) -> evolves to pink camu-camu with a passing note of guava… balsam of Peru the backset -> lemon verbena -> reverts to cocoa with a sub-lime fringe

Spiced Coconut Pecan
cardamom & sea salt to the fore… strong & long… pecan tries to elbow-in with its crunching broken pieces but stands little chance -> caps out on butter (as much the salted dairy kind than any other)

Cinnamon Daddy Mactella
hazelnut cut by macadamia
Quality   15.3 / 20
Pangoa, Peru
70%; Junin. Satipo
From central Peru in the Amazon & very much the sister to Zotter's Peru 70-16 of the same Pangoa region.
Quite the acidic sequence, & so unexpectant judging from the opening frame. It peaks on that coded pink fruit to the momentary tipping-point of imbalance... except for well-bracketed at both ends of the progression. Vanilla helps immeasurably to bridge the span while still inhering it with a sense of terra.
INGREDIENTS: cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, vanilla bean

Spiced Coconut Pecan
Madre, always enamored with additives, lays it on here, with a little more flex. Should really be labeled 'Cardamom Bar'. 55% cacáo-content merely / meekly a foil for the spice action. Superb mouthfeel the lasting takeaway -- contrastive pecan bits sinking into the ever-enveloping yet yielding couverture.
INGREDIENTS: cocoa mass, sugar, coconut, cocoa butter, pecan, cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla bean, sea salt

Cinnamon Daddy Mactella
Twee cute name & too dilute taste.
No progression. As a spreadable, this just hits on a one-shot. The ever mild macs backup the filberts & further reduce their meatiness after Madre elects to utilize hazelnut oil instead of whole nuts ground into paste. The others in this ingredient pool swim in sub-surface support.
INGREDIENTS: cacáo, macadamia, sugar, hazelnut oil, cinnamon, cocoa butter, pecan, cinnamon, cardamom, sea salt, vanilla bean
