This unique origin ‘El Salvador’ chocolate has a real taste personality – acidic and fruity which I find perfect for light pastries, but also full-bodied and more complex. The wood and tobacco notes in particular influenced my ‘SMOK’ recipe for a smoked caramel. It also has a great fluidity which makes it perfect for moulding and coating.”

A characterful, dynamic aromatic chocolate with a woody tobacco-like aroma. It starts strongly with a nutty roasted profile, giving way to the gentle acidity of cherries and plums. Ripe apricots and peach notes arrive with a touch of jasmine as company. Ending with an addictive clean sweet and sour finish. One piece is never enough.
