Adam Michael has this to say “Cocoa absolute is dreamy, luxurious, seductive chocolate heaven. The aroma is very straightforward – providing a never ending supply of luxury chocolate notes. To elaborate further, the top note is mouth-watering dark bitter sweet chocolate with a similarity to the taste of eating Cadburys Bornville chocolate. The heart note to my nose contains a juicy kirsch morello cherries nuance that makes me think of my mum’s homemade chocolate cake – always finished with those spectacular tasting cherries.
The dark brown material is of a sticky, gunky consistency, completely ethanol soluble and obtained from the beans – not the powder. We have a colourless liquid available, easy to work with, pleasant and very popular amongst those starting out but in my opinion that material pales in comparison to this absolute which is extraordinarily good. Uses include gourmand based accords, pairing beautifully with chilli, cinnamon, peppermint, vanilla, tonka, orris, fruits and nuts such as hazelnut, pistachios, cherries and blood oranges. A must for creating the perfect chocolate note, imparts exotic dreamy facets within floral bouquets and offers very interesting effects when used within tobacco, hay, leather and wood accords.”
