This is the softer version of the 80% which has a great deal of punch. Here the experience is more floral. Just at the edge you should notice some lemon rind, cinnamon and earthiness. The difference 5% makes with this chocolate is striking. Here we have a bar that you can certainly enjoy in greater quantities than the 80%. But even then there is a delightful sharpness that lingers and even pushes the vanilla into third place.
