Shades of vitamin supplements, now that agri-biz has so denatured the food supply (fertilizers, pesticides, GMOs, etc.), milk needs to be enriched with calcium, Vitamins A & D... ba ba ba (thanks McWorld). Grenada cacáo has legions of its own native spices which were virtually absent in Coppeneur's unflavored bar from this origin. Here, they add them back-in & charge for the privilege, similar to shopping at Whole Paychex to pay more for what should be the norm - organic natural whole foods. That said, this is well worth the price of admission.
Appearance   5 / 5
Color: umber rust
Surface: clean imprint
Temper: matte
Snap: crackatoa
Aroma   8 / 10
vanilla, not ordinarily in Coppeneur's line, in use here - liberally... & literally airborne - the baton twirler as the others form a procession on the gorund in the spice parade led by nutmeg, then pepper... cinnamon hiding in there somewhere along w/, smoke on this, a little bit of hempseed
Mouthfeel   11.8 / 15
Texture: micro-granular
Melt: staggered
Flavor   44.7 / 50
hemp on the come up -> immediately nutmeg & mace crush it, basking in the glow of white fruits (cherimoya, loquat, pineapple)... a certain pull between them -> bitter chocolate adds to the tension until a percinnamon (re: persimmon/cinnamon) & tangerine resolve w/o quite unifying it -> finishes young rum; pepper backfire going away
Quality   17.9 / 20
Traditional 4-Spice modified (clove swapped out for vanilla) & springs a little too hot (not heat-wise but on the aromatic side). Nonetheless, the spice mix scintillates an already bright-breaking bar, here with more tannic structure than the plain version to deal with the additives. True to form, Coppeneur goes for it all - ear, nose, throat, larynx, & jugular - & just rips it. CBS ~3:5:3
