A break-thru bar for Torres: edible.
Appearance   4 / 5
Color: medium brown
Surface:
Temper: matte
Snap: high frequency crackle; clean break wall
Aroma   7.1 / 10
cocoa -> green banana -> mild coconut / roasted almond -> red fruit mash, light tobacco, & herbal top notes
Mouthfeel   12.3 / 15
Texture: substantial weight; smooth
Melt: long, slow, evenly dispersed
Flavor   41.2 / 50
mirrors but fails to surpass aroma: immediate cocoa hit -> light brown-sugar toffee -> banana & mango peels -> red currant -> rare cilantro disappears into roasted almond -> Santander-like marsh-mellow
Quality   16.4 / 20
Shares the reality while starving the hope of Peruvian cacáo. Seems unsure how to approach handling this origin. Torres’ usual M.O. – burnt roasting – abandoned here &, when in doubt, goes for added sugar.

Shows the promise of the Jacques.
