Dark: Dominican Republic 70%
Points: 89.50
Produced with beans from the harvest of 2013. In the beginning with a distinct (fruity) acidity and also astringent, tart to slightly bitter. With a very fine and well balanced melt. Towards the middle and during the finish the sweetness increasesand the flavors of jam, citrus fruits and earthy notes.


Milk/ Coconut Milk Chocolate 52%
Points: 88.50
Strong vegan milk chocolate, which contains coconut instead of milk powder and also coconutsugar (from Java, Indonesia). With an intensive cocoa character and a good flavor of coconut. A somewhat softer consistency cream, slightly sticky and with a somewhat rough mouthfeel. With flavors of cocoa, coconut, malt and caramel.


Flavored: Salted Brittle Caramel 70%
Points: 85.40
Dark chocolate flavored with sprinkled on salted caramel sprinkles. The chocolate is a blend of various cocoa varieties and is just as excellent as the oure chocolates. The caramel sprinkle harmonizes very well with the tart chocolate and also the salt can be tasted distinctly.


Summary:
The chocolates have turned out absolutely superbly and the company has mastered the leap into the world-class of chocolatemanufacturers with bravery. If the selection were a little broader and if one could sustain a certain continuity, Wellington Chocolate Factory would be the first candidate for the accolade with six cocoa fruits.Even the current raiting with five cocoa fruits and the very convincing individual ratings are a damned good start into the industry for a novice.
