Marou Ben Tre 78%
This generous dark chocolate bar has been crafted in Vietnam using cocoa beans from the province of Ben Tre. The bar opens with a spicy aroma that leads to notes of nutmeg, cassia & peppercorns. A little sweetness mixes with mellow coconut.
The well-tempered bar is glossy with a clean sap. Thanks to Marou’s added cocoa butter (made from beans of the same region) the chocolate has a smooth, buttery texture which makes eating it a particularly indulgent experience.

I enjoyed it but failed to get the coconut flavour which is in the 55% bar.

Nice smooth and fruity flavour, long slow melt that leaves a good lingering aftertaste.

Subtle bar with pleasant sweet fruity tones that develop slowly. Minimal acidity, smooth, slow melt and long after taste. I'm not giving it full score, as I prefer some more powerful chocolates.

Very intriguing bar. Not bitter or acidic but warming and welcoming. Initial hints of fruit and warm spices and peppercorn which fade to form a subtle sweetness. Chocolate very smooth and melts wonderfully, a great bar from Marou, so far my favourite of theirs.
