Raaka - Raw Chocolate - Bourbon Cask AgedRaaka
IT GETS BETTER WITH AGE
The tuxedoed sophisticate in the family. Raaka aged single origin Tanzanian cacao in bourbon casks for two months, creating a deeply nuanced bar with a cocktail-like vibe: oaky and smooth, with a hint of cherry cordial on the finish. Their best selling bar and 2013 Good Food Award Winner.
ORIGIN: Kokoa Kamili, Tanzania
Organic cacao beans, organic cane sugar, organic maple sugar, organic cacao butter.
When Raaka's people make chocolate they're after something that feels the way Raaka sounds: strong, wild, playful, and most of all, different. “Raaka” means “raw” in Finnish. The company does not have any Finish connections or origins, but the cadence of the word captures the essence of their processes and chocolates. The geniuses say that Raaka chocolates are made of unroasted cacao beans, which preserves the bold, bright, and fruitier flavors of the beans. Whatever the case, these chocolates are definitely Raaka-stars in our books and in our tummies.
Bought this thinking that there was actual bourbon inside but when it came then i realise that it was actually aged in a bourbon cask LOL. ok maybe im wrong but thats what it says in the title. It was still good la. the bar a bit small for the price but still worth a try! (4 star cause of the price and lack of alcohol inside)

The initial flavours remind me of Original Beans and some Idilio bars (both manufactured by Felchlin). Smooth melt.
