This is an absolutely splendid 72%. It's just so rich, creamy, floral with a touch of the nutty that you sometimes get in Ecuadorian chocolate. With it there is a background flavour which is typical of Hoja Verde in that it's a very 'green' one which is either ironic or by design as Verde is obviously Spanish for 'Green'. As that subsides it most definitely does move into 'fig' - there is no denying that.
What is surprising is the lack of either acidity or astringency which makes this a very good 80% to start or even extend your experience with.
