Kiwi and mango come to mind as the chocolate melts on the tongue. Perhaps there's even a touch of lumi? Underneath it all there is a hint of molasses which binds it all together and brings it to sweet and sour finish. At the tip there is some salinity which is welcome, but unexpected. I don't recall trying a chocolate similar to this in the past. 

The lead farmer here was Fermin Arriaga whose team has harvested some fine cocoa in their farm in the north west of the Central American nation which isn't normally renowned as being an exemplary cocoa growing country. It's great that companies such as Askinosie are pushing the envelope on ethically sourcing cocoa and producing incredibly interesting chocolate from it.
