  • Intro:

    Distilled by Emilio Vieyra using Agave Cupreata, this expression is distilled on copper, aged in glass for a year and then bottled up. This is Lot 27 from November of 2016. Lets dive in.

  • Nose:

    Closed off on the nose, but whats there is really interesting. Honey, lemon curd, clove, cocoa, faint leather notes. Sweet, savory, rich. No pepper or smoke.

  • Taste:

    Sweet and rich on the palate. Cream and honey, cocoa and vanilla bean, faint ash, lovely clove note. Hint of garlic, fresh green bell pepper but only faintly. Complex.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, a bit ashier here. Bright pepper notes, clove, honey, cocoa and a lovely minerality smoke richness.

  • Overall:

    Really great overall, demonstrating some interesting character thats really enticing. This is my first Don Mateo and almost assuredly not my last.
