Defino Tobon Mejia
This is a Papalote distilled by Defino Tobon Mejia, and is bottled by 5 Sentidos. Featuring a single distillation, this naturally fermented run produced 45 liters. This bottle was a Mexico only bottling, so I'm looking forward to diving in. Let's get to it.
Vibrant and pungent. Latex paint, beef bouillon, sweet citrus and limestone. Meaty, mineral forward and fruity. Faint cotton candy sweetness.
Sweet cream and orange. Medium on the palate, some minerality and wood smoke. Less complex than the nose but entirely pleasant.
Smoky, a hair bitter and sour, woody. The paint note is back, and while there is a vanilla and cocoa sweetness, it isn’t as vibrant as the nose.
This is pretty good. Interesting and unique but not a particular favorite of mine. That said, there are no major flaws here.
