Distilled by Atenogenes in San Isidro Guishe, this expression is distilled from agave bicuixe on copper. Producing only 62 liters, this lot, BC04-19MX should be a treat. Let's dive in.
Rich, roasty and toasty. Sweet earth, pepper, light funk and some agave stank. Clay, faintly meaty, with tons of character here.
Sweet at first on the palate - coats really nicely. Sweet agave, some lemon curd, a hint of pepper and faint ash. On the back palate, more savory notes burst forth - garlic, clay, wood smoke and some minerality.
Long, ashy, with a hint of beef bouillon. Minerality, burning wood, a hint of clay. Not wildly complex here but still very good.
Impressive depth on the nose and palate - a really lovely bicuixe. The terroir is evident here, driving those savory notes to grapple with the sweet nose. Really well done, certainly very good.
