unwinds long chocolate straightaway into a fresh bread line -> fruit complex (tart fried cherries -> tangelo/mango citrus) take control, wrapped in banana leaf -> almond skin endnotes w/ operatic echos well after the curtain closes
Quality   18.2 / 20
Nice synergy & balance. S-B veers off its usual course during the initial stages of this bar until, like a good understudy, following Valrhona to the land of twang (tart & tangy). Still, a trophy chocolate, & important one, signaling it’s prepared to step out on its own. CBS ~2:3:2
