      Tasting Notes
      (73% Cacao)
      Having pursued the emblematic flavor of Nacional cacao with Dark, we allowed ourselves greater poetic license with Light. In our pre-production experiments, we noticed that as we extended the conch time, the flavor profile gradually shifted from the floral end of the spectrum toward a stronger presence of fruit notes. Traces of flowers remain on the nose in the form of a faint perfume, but on the palate the primary impression is a succession of fruits, with notes of citrus, raspberry, plum, and raisin all present. The later harvest and lower cacao percentage soften the tannins and allow a more subtle, nuanced expression with many tertiary layers that confer complexity.
