Concept trumps content; a line graded by cocoa percentages – 41/ 68 / 85 / 99 – in a serious hi-brow foil.
Presentation   3.4 / 5
medallions the size of small taxi cabs
Aromas   4.7 / 5
honest & true
Textures/Melt   6.3 / 10
Shells: semi thick
Centers: firm
Flavor   22.6 / 50
top-shelf list of ingredients never fuse into a taste blend, let alone a collection
Quality   11.2 / 30
Big blub globules & lug-weight handling
Selections
Couverture: mostly El Rey
41% Caramel – simple Milk Choc based in all likelihood on El Rey’s Caoba
41% Pecan - ditto as the Caramel above
58% Pecan – ganache gets in the way before yielding to true cocoa run-up of small Canero-like fruit compound
58% Espresso – auto-joy & all of Venzy calling; full head of coffee followed-on quickly by smooth Criollo rush
73% Almond – true black w/ a side of almondine; the easy method for getting your bitters on
73% Chipotle/ – heat & fire; clumsy heavy-handed work
85% Cointreau – a mix & mostly mismatch of ingredients
85% Classic – on-point
