Distilled by Varo Destileria at NOM 1616, Codijo 1530 Rosa is an interesting expression employing something we don't usually see: maturation in Rose casks. Feature or gimmick? Let's dive in.
Starburst candies, lemon, light acrid chemical notes, some roasted agave and a hint of confectioners sugar. Little to no tannin.
Sweet on the palate, fruity with notes of honey and pear. Guava, lime, an interesting youthful maltiness. Kind of artificial on the fruit notes, but not too crazy.
Long, rich, peppery finish. It's also got some artificial fruit influence here and that leaves us with a particularly strange finish.
I can't really say this is for me. Maybe rose + tequila is just a strange combination I'll need to warm up to, but I don't think this was done to the best of its ability.
