  • Intro:

    Produced in Santa Maria Ixcatlan by David Rivera Herrera, this Papalometl is fermented in cowhide for 6 days before distillation on a clay pot. A double distillation yields 80 liters. Bottled by Maguey Melate, this should be a real treat. Let's get to it.

  • Nose:

    Funky, meaty, cheesy. Stinky cheese, rich beef broth, savory lamb, pepper and garlic. Brine, earthy soil. Bizarre and intriguing.

  • Taste:

    Sweet at first before the salinity and meat move on in. This is next level savory and reminds me of meat, crackers and cheese. Charcuterie in a bottle.

  • Finish:

    Long finish and the train keeps on chugging. Tons of cheese, garlic, onion, olive and a hint of beef. Wild.

  • Overall:

    Perhaps the most savory of expressions I have had this year - its amazing just how flavorful this is.

  • Score:
