Blind Assessment: The soft, sweet-toned aroma combines touches of toast and caramel with flowers and fruit. Complete in the small cup: full body, silky mouthfeel and flavors that balance an orange peel-like citrus quality with a pungent and penetrating dark chocolate. A mild astringency distracts slightly in the flavor-saturated finish. In two parts milk the orange note nicely balances the inevitable milk-rounded chocolate.
