Although we cannot be sure the other recent Peruvian chocolate from Zotter was actually a Criollo, this one, at the 80% level is marked as such (NB: the image says 82% but this version is 80%). In fact the beans used to make this chocolate are apparently the white-in-appearance Porcelana Criollo from the Aprocap and Zotter have forsaken the usually light and wispy flavour profile and have, instead, offered more of the natural acidity of the cocoa beans.
In terms of notes, it’s a strange affair. There's certainly spice, liquorice and maybe even lumi. It certainly isn't anything like the Porcelana you might have tried from the likes of Amedei, Valrhona, Bonnat or Original Beans.
