  • Intro:

    Distilled by Artemio Garcia Cruz in San Dionisio Ocotepec, this ensamble contains a staggering 6 varieties: jabali, madre cuixe, cuixe, esapdin, tepextate and tobala. Whew.

  • Nose:

    Extremely complex - lots going on here. Bright cream sweetness, paint, varnish, some savory earthy notes, salinity and a hint of garlic. Interesting.

  • Taste:

    Rich and viscous on the palate. Tons of sweet cream, honey, rock candy. Pairs nicely with pepper, a rising bread note, clay, salinity and some minerality. Super savory.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, quite a bit of ash, smoke, salinity, cedar and an interesting earthiness. The sweetness is fading a bit, a hint of that paint note remaining.

  • Overall:

    Reminds me of Campero's Sierra Negra I love - there's such a combination of sweetness, fun acrid notes, smoke and a long savory finish. Love it.
