Auguste Pralus began making patisserie and baked treats in Roanne, France in 1948. Today, Auguste’s son François is at the helm, and Pralus is now best known for its extensive range of single origin chocolate bars. François is a master chocolate maker who is always on the lookout for new beans from exotic locations.
This bar is 75% cocoa solids and made with beans from Venezuela. Like most Pralus bars, it has a smooth texture, thanks to a little added cocoa butter. The chocolate has a roasted flavour and underlying floral and liquorice notes.

Well I loved it. This is bang in my zone of flavours. I appreciate a well-crafted bunch of Trinitario beans, so thank you for including it in the box. I don’t think it has a snap as such (more like a grind), it’s too thick for a start, but don’t let that put you off. Unlike some, I enjoy a chew at chocolate (for a textural thrill) not only a melt for flavour sensation. So this was interesting because it melted as I chewed, and eased out its flavours and melted simultaneously. It was not too sweetened either, a very good thing for a 75%, and still maintained a dark, fruity tang on the back palate. There’s a hint of dark rum or liquorice somewhere in there, too, which again is right up my street. Yeah, not at all bad.

Chocolatey, sweet and intensely liquorishy, I found this an odd sensation along with the roasted tones and not really to my taste.
