Valrhona Les Grands Crus Caraïbe "balanced & velvety" 66% cacao

A gentle dark chocolate -- very little bitterness. Some floral flavors, some fruity. Not much "snap" when breaking the bar, but it has a nice even color and appearance. 7.3

No bitterness at all. Smooth. Begging to be paired with cherries?

From the label:
"For generations, cacao trees have been grown in the shade of banana trees in the Caribbean, on rich clay loam soils often referred to as 'chocolate lands'. A unique blend of Trinitario beans gives Caraibe its exceptionally long nose and sweet aromas of dried fruits."
