  • Intro:

    Distilled, probably, by Valentin Celis in Zimatlan, Oaxaca, this expression bottled by In Situ features Penca Verde. Distilled using clay after clay pot fermentation, this should have no lack of flavor.

  • Nose:

    Wow - sweet and lactic on the nose. Savory and almost game-y with notes like garlic, beef, red licorice and pepper. So much savory character here that blends nicely with a light rock candy sugar, hint of lactic fruits.

  • Taste:

    Sweet on the palate, creamy and berry forward at first before a tan of beef bouillon, onion, soil and ash arrive.

  • Finish:

    Long finish with plenty of clay, honey, a pop of pepper and honey. Light raspberry before some cocktail onion. Lovely.

  • Overall:

    Incredible and complex, my notes only read 'bonkers' from my second tasting for this review. This is the real deal, and while you pay for it, it's worth it.
