This is an Espadin distilled by Maestro Celso Luis Santiago using agave Espadin harvested in 2019. Distilled in San Pedro Quialoni this release saw fermentation in wood barrels and a double copper distillation in 2019. Batch RGO-E1503US. I'm super stoked to see Medida doing 200ml bottlings, so I snapped up one of each of all 6 expressions they released at KLWines. If you know me, you know how much I support when brands do this, and it makes it a no brainer to buy these up in support of that, in my opinion. Anyways, back to the agave. Let's get to it.
This is bonkers - bubble gum, cotton candy, jawbreaker candies. So bright, sweet, fruity and candy like. Big perfume forward nose, with lots going on. The best word I could summon if I had to pick one descriptor is JuicyFruit.
Sweet and viscous - coats the tongue nicely. Lots of sweet candy notes, namely Swedish fish. Red berries, faint licorice. Then the smoke. Ashy wood smoke, faint plastic. Some minerals.
Long finish but more ashy and smoky here. The fruits have all but wisped away, to leave woody smoke and some chemical tastes.
This is all over the place. That nose is insane, but I’m really not a huge fan of the one noted finish. It’s good, but man, it could have been really great.
