I was going to wait a little while before opening my next bar of chocolate, but I got a bit peckish this evening and thought I'd try out the other Valrhona bar I ordered. This one is the Valrhona Grand Cru Guanaja and it's a 70% cocoa bar that is a mix of Trinitario and Criollo beans from plantations in South America.
I wasn't expecting much after the last Valrhona bar was so mediocre, and as a result I was super surprised with the deliciousness of the chocolate. This is exactly what I want from my chocolate. It was smooth like the Caraïbe but not boring. The flavour is rich and full and it lingers in the most pleasant of ways. No bitter aftertaste like crappier dark chocolate, just smooth awesomeness all the way. It melts nicely in your mouth without any effort, it's not grainy at all. This will definitely be a bar I get again.
