  • Intro:

    Distilled by Pedro Vasquez in 2019, this release of Arroqueno is bottled by El Jolgorio for their prestigious Black Bottle series release. I’m a longtime lover of Arroqueno, and I recently saw this at a price I couldn’t pass up. Let’s dive in.

  • Nose:

    Extremely powerful nose. Bright, acidic, almost a hint of lactose, but it’s complex. Sweet peach, creamy sweetness, light earthiness and some lactic funk that almost comes as a hit of vinegar. Bright acidity, light pepper.

  • Taste:

    Rich on the palate, heat is just right for the relatively high ABV. Celery salt, cream cheese frosting, pepper, a bit of slate and some honey and apricot.

  • Finish:

    Long, mineral forward finish. Less of that frosting I get from arroqueno on the finish, it’s bright, acidic and loaded with stone and mineralogy.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this is something special. The cream cheese frosting and decadent lactic qualities play well with bright, vibrant acidity and stone. This one takes some work to peel apart, but it’s a delight from start to finish. \t\t
