The Chuno is a single-variety, processed separately from harvest to export from other varieties to preserve its unique flavor characteristics. The wet-mass is processed in a centralized facility where the post-harvest can be entirely controlled to ensure quality and consistency over time.
Tasting Panel Notes
The flavor is an immediate burst of a fresh fruit salad– begins with a evanescent brown fruit (dates, figs) then shifts to a red fruit and mixed tropical fruit character with ripe plums, berries, red currant accompanied by a fruit bowl of mango, apricot and pineapple. Mid-taste displays the beginnings of a honey / light molasses / panella. Light nut notes shift to a nut skins character at the end. The end finishes with hints of a vanilla and a mocha character. Masculine in its character and intensity.
