On the continuum across the spectrum, confection is more than candy, less than chocolate. Torres is decent confection; a pastry chef dipping his bon-bons... the chocolate equivalent of tea-bagging... right down the gullet.
Presentation   3.9 / 5
acrylic nails design
Aromas   3.7 / 5
the whiff of flash frozen
Textures/Melt   6.6 / 10
Shells: hard-shelled
Centers: generally flat & sometimes stiff
Flavor   41.4 / 50
low snap, decent fill-content, unveiled mostly in the 2nd draw; firm, trending toward overly strong complexes; fruit interiors a refined quotient of juju beans / gummy bear jellies; alcohol/tea infusions share similar characteristics
Quality   23.8 / 30
Mediocre elements deftly optimized with culinary craft. What he buys for pennies he sells for dollars & adds up to huge margins - always a profitable business model.
Selections
Couverture: in-house & Belcolade
Pieces rising well above the avg curve incl: supreme Raspberry; Cinnamon Praline (dances w/ rivaling flavors that ultimately swoon to the monarch of all spices); & signature Almondine
