Chocolate review: El Rey Chocolate Oscuro Gran Saman 70% Cacao

I have a backlog on posts about chocolate so I decided to feature one more as a follow-up to the recent one on El Rey chocolates. I actually have something like four chocolate bars in this series of sorts and this is the second part.

The Gran Saman dark chocolate claimed to contain at least 70% cacao.
Details about the chocolate at the back of the wrapper.
Ingredients and nutritional information were in Spanish but one can figure out what are stated here.
Description of the cacao variety and the region where in came from in Venezuela.
The Gran Saman bar also did not disappoint. It was a dark chocolate with a higher cacao content than the Mijao. We thought it had only a slightly more bitter taste than Mijao and came out as smooth as any high quality dark chocolate should be. Of course, the time it spent in our refrigerator could have affected how it tasted for us. Note that the ideal temperature for storage according to the info on the packaging is 16 to 20 degrees C. We usually eat our chocolate not too long after we get it from the fridge so my readers should also take note of that. :)
