Chocolate review: Montezuma's Lordy Lord Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs

This Christmas season did not pass before I made a couple more reviews of the chocolates we've had this year. There are actually a lot more that I wanted to write about but I put the reviews on hold as a act of respect to those affected by the recent earthquake and typhoons in the Philippines.

Among the best chocolates we tasted were those given by very close friends when the Clairvoyant was visiting London on a business trip. Montezuma's Lordy Lord was a very pleasant surprise and it is one of those chocolates that makes you crave for more after a taste. Lordy Lord is a dark chocolate with a minimum of 70% cocoa. It is smooth and not at all strong or distinctively bitter despite the high cocoa content - definitely the mark of high quality dark chocolate.

I haven't seen any bar from Montezuma's in any store in Manila but perhaps they would be available in Singapore or Hong Kong? Of course, there's an online option but I'm not sure they ship these to the Philippines given customs and other factors that also make ordering books a burden here. And so we're already looking forward to the next trip to London or perhaps someone bringing over some of these chocolates here.
