Gerardo Ruelas Hernandez
Flor del Desierto Sotol
This is a Sotol produced by Gerardo Ruelas using Dasylilrion Leiophyllum with rattlesnake added to distillation. If Sotol wasn't already interesting enough, this was a compelling combination that I had to try. Let's dive in.
Earthy, floral. Honey, bread, perfumey. Really effervescent and interesting. Strange, to say the least.
Sweet. Brown sugar, vinegar. Beets, molasss, light ammonia. Dirty, earthy.
Medium in length, but a bit hot and a good deal of earth. Molasses, pepper, light brine and clay. Interesting.
Super unique. I kind of waffle between loving it and not loving it, but I like this more than the desert. Crazy unique.
