Yet another Swiss maker living off the fumes of the past.
Presentation   2.9 / 5
standard-looking Swiss delinquency: milk duds & cocoa dust
Aromas   3.2 / 5
smell the sight: waxen butter points, cream, & cocoa powder
Textures/Melt   6.7 / 10
Shells: thick
Centers: classic Swiss cream
Flavor   29.4 / 50
splotch
Quality   16.8 / 30
As a national trait, Switzerland has acquired a well-deserved rep among professional insiders for overly sweetened fare. This does absolutely nothing to endanger that heritage.
Selections
Couverture: generic
Dark Truffle- more Milk-like than Dark; heavily sweet & cream ganache w/ chalk kill-shot
Light Truffle - casein-tasting glue; malted too
Malaga - cocoa dust on Dark w/ varying degrees of Dutching; bit metallic yields dry profile on the edge of bitterness
Signature - corn syrup mislabeled 'caramel' congeals into a stick of Slo-Poke
Cinnamon Baton - instead of twice as nice, sugar 'n spice just make for candy lice
Hazelnut - sugar overkill
Espresso - again, all elements blaring: coffee, cream & sugar w/ cocoa syrup in the stem
