  • To’ak Signature Rain Harvest Dark 2015 80%

     

    The goal with Dark was to highlight the emblematic characteristics of Nacional cacao from the Arriba growing region in Ecuador – akin to the French province of Burgundy in the wine world.

    The higher cacao percentage, longer fermentation time, and relatively shorter conch time have produced a strongly floral aroma that continues to intermingle with red fruits and earthy notes on the palate.

     

    Nose: Flowers and herbs, trace of nuts.

    Palate: Floral, woody, herbal, earthy, berries.

    Finish: Long, dark, rich and herbal.

  • To’ak Signature Rain Harvest Dark 2018 100%

     

    An unusually dry and cloudy growing season, combined with a mild roast and minimal conching, has produced arguably the most floral edition of To’ak chocolate thus far. This rendition is 100% cacao, without any extra cacao butter or other additives. Pure dark chocolate from the valley of Piedra de Plata.

    Flavor Description
    Mochaccino, roasted almonds, floral

    Nose: Floral, green olives, fresh wood.

    Palate: Roasted almonds, mochaccino, jasmine.

    Finish: Perfumed coffee with roasted almonds on top.

    Pairing Recommendations

    Creamy or nutty cheeses pair beautifully—they serve to neutralize some of the bitterness and bring out the nutty notes. Think mild brie, triple-cremes, and Alpine-style cheeses. For spirits, Zacapa 23 rum is a top choice. Properly aged Cognac or Tequila and a wide range of whiskies will all work well. In the realm of wines, go with a super sweet fortified wine like Pedro Ximenez sherry.

    Appellation: Piedra de Plata

    Variety: Heirloom Nacional

    Fermentation: 4-5 days

    Roast: Medium

    Conch: None
