An arriviste; needs work
Selections
Couverture: Valrhona
Salted Honey Caramel – not quite a tractor pull but a minivan tug on the teeth; loud salted-up butterscotch leaves little room for chocolate to be heard; balance tilted way out in front
Cabernet - bit of bitter combat between the bean & the grape: balsamic derived from a white Trebbiano wins the battle in a takedown
Black Walnut – best integration of the set; chews into a walnut-type marizipan
