El Rey Mijao 61%

El Rey is a chocolate brand that’s known far and wide amongst fellow chocolate enthusiasts. They’re a Venezuelan based chocolate and have many fans, with many of them chefs, because of it’s excellent flavor and quality. I picked up this 61% Mijao (Venezuelan singe bean origin “Carenero Superior”) bar in Whole Foods eager to taste this greatness for myself and put my tasting skills to good work.

Unwrapping the bar, the chocolate is gorgeous to look at with very dark in color with reddish undertones. There’s not a lot of gloss to it, only a subtle sheen, but still beautiful. The pieces have a great hard snap and clean break. The pieces sound crisp, like dominoes, when they clink together.

The smell is very bright and vibrant of coffee, red fruits, cinnamon, cocoa, vanilla and a hint of raisins. It’s a wonderful combination of aromas, and it makes me even more anxious to taste it!

The snap is very hard and robust. In the mouth I found chewing the chocolate was useful in coaxing the flavors out. Once it starts melting it has a nice smooth feel to it. The flavor is very mild and “green” at first, I get notes of forest, asparagus and green coffee. Then the taste mellows into cream, caramel and cappuccino in the middle, then the finish is bright with a light tartness of berries mixed with more cream notes. The aftertaste is very fresh and clean with light notes of the green coffee, but they are barely noticeable.

Oh yum! I now know what the fuss is all about. A beautiful bittersweet chocolate to invest in, whether you intend to bake with it or, as I prefer, to eat it straight.
