M75 stands for Mack's 75 grams of dynamite - the size & weight of this bar. Mack Domori, shaman of cult cacáo, pulls off yet more prestidigitation in another magic-science act.

Color: deep garnet
Surface: perfect face; blemished flipside

Snap: sharp attack
Aroma   7.4 / 10
sylvan, spice, & spirits; thick churned-butter (almost a hard cheese) on the rub down
Mouthfeel   14.5 / 15
Texture: top of his game: velour
Melt: insanely long: nectar
Flavor   46.1 / 50
big-blasting chocolate-bang ignites rawkus orange creams (sapote / papaya, & mango too) -> veil of soft golden tobacco drapes over German chamomile; then, in a sleight-of-hand - an impalpable bitter directs flavors & adds background depth for black spice-spangled banner (nutmeg / cloves & faint Chuao-like reminiscences on molasses) -> Domori's signature cream-cashew next goes green (green fig / green grape, & now green mango too) -> blows out more golden smoke
Quality   19.3 / 20
Near the height of Domori's insight. Carenero sets off the fruit bomb of all Venzys but here Mack fuses up the full-spectrum of the cultivar rather than the usual fruit-focused approach by selecting beans of sound ferment & perhaps slightly less-than-complete sun-dried technique, then processed thru a median roast + somewhat shorter conche cycle. In this full-spectrum respect, Domori's the definitive Carenero.
