TASTING NOTES

This bar has a distinctive flavour profile of sour cherry and deep oak, with accents of walnuts also coming through on the long finish.

ABOUT THE MAKER

The fossa is a cat-like mammal indigenous to Madagascar, just like the craft chocolate Yilina and Jay tasted years ago that first started their chocolate journey. Yilina and Jay’s first taste of craft chocolate was a Madagascan dark bar, and they were instantly hit by wonderful flavours of refreshingly tart raspberries and warm almonds. This moment opened the pair’s eyes to how craft chocolate can have such flavour clarity – so different from the normal mass-produced industrial chocolate they grew up with.

THE BEANS

The beans in this bar were grown by the Semai Orang Asli community of Kampung Long B in Pahang, Malaysia. Their trees are grown pesticide free in an agroforestry scheme aiming to preserve natural biodiversity, and the beans are fermented in used whisky barrels.

  1. Andrew S.

    Strong bold flavours that keep giving. This bar is expensive, but a little goes a long way, the flavour profile lasts several minutes.

  2. JANG HYEOP K.

    stately oak scent and a soft apricot
    The oak scent is deep but not strong or excessive
    Nutty like walnut spread help to harmonize.
