This is a very pretty bar, with simple, understated packaging that belies the complex and mature Hotel Chocolat treat. It’s one of the few chocolates grown on their own estate in St Lucia and its rarity adds to the luxury. Tasting reveals a dark, burnt flavour with a fruity undertone. It only has merest hint of sea salt that complements the chocolate very well, but might be disappointing if you are more used to Lindt’s saltier offerings.
Overall, another excellent offering by Hotel Chocolat. A mild, dark chocolate to sit down and savour. Just ignore the fleur de sel claims on the label.
