Distilled by Carlos Angulo Rios for Maguey Melate, this batch of Espadin Chacaleno is distilled in Durango using a copper still. Batch CAR-CHO-001.
Fascinating blend of effervescent fruit, mango, lemon zest, honey and a touch of paint/clay.
Oddly viscous on the palate, a bit of cedar, sandalwood, sweet confectioners sugar, pepper and a touch of ash. Light mango, clay, some fruit and cream. Faint slate.
Long ashy finish that incorporates notes of cedar, some earthiness, a bit of cream sweetness and a faint bit of ash.
This is honestly pretty rockin. This encapsulates some of my favorite agave notes with a great transition from nose to finish.
