Blanxart – Chocolate Negro

The Blanxart dark chocolate bar is 62% cocoa (according to the list of ingredients). Blanxart is a Spanish chocolatier which calls Barcelona home. It’s not entirely clear from their website where they get their cocoa beans, though they do reference Ghana and the Dominican Republic.

The aroma of the chocolate is flowery and mellow, with caramel/vanilla undertones. Essentially, it smells sweet.

The first flavor is citrusy, but it immediately changes over to a more robust caramel flavor as it begins to melt (though towards the end I noticed that a fruity essence returned). Overall good flavor, though not especially creamy and didn’t melt very smoothly in my mouth. I did miss the bitterness of cocoa, so I could have gone for a little less sugar (but it’s 62%..).
