Appearance: Transparent, crystal clear.
Nose: Initial maritime attack, with slightly sour notes: green olives in brine, yoghurt, wet grass. All the vegetable notes of sugarcane, with a fresh and balsamic touch.
Palate: Robust but rounded, with the sweetness of the canes on the forefront, then growing on spicy and balsamic notes: mint, liquorice, cinnamon, white pepper. A hint of the vegetable and salty notes found at the nose.
Finish: Clean, peppery and vegetal. High persistence on notes of liquorice root.
Comment: Perfect for cocktails (maybe with a drop of vermouth), but its smoothness makes it interesting and not aggressive at all even straight or simply with ice cubes. Refreshing and minty.Suggested match: Valrhona Caraibe 66%, or another dark chocolate with high cocoa content and big mouthfeel.
