This is one of those chocolates from a location that used to, and still for some, be the most revered of all sources of cocoa. Others might have taken great strides to taking the crown from Chuao in recent years but there is no doubting the absolute quality of the this chocolate and seeing as Venezuela is currently having severe economic times with exports of cacao being banned (so we've been told) then it is doubtful how long this chocolate will keep being produced.
What we do know is that this is still a very fine chocolate. Don't expect to be bowled over by intense flavour, this is neither Bonnat's style nor what is available from the bean. It is a classical 'chocolaty' bar in that sense. It does appear to have a higher 'roast', nutty flavour than many of Bonnat's other chocolates and perhaps a much fruitier, perhaps mango or peach, than the Porcelana which was also grown in northern Venezuela, but it is still very much 'up there' with both the origin of the bean and the craftsmanship with the bean.
