Federico Valentin Alva Ibanez
Distilled on copper in Puebla, this ensamble featuring Espadilla and Tobala was produced by Federico Valentin Alva Ibanez for Maguey Melate.
Really fresh and crisp. Fresh cut grass, hay, corn, a hint of barn yard. Fresh zesty citrus and a hint of rain water. Cedar and pine.
Medium mouth feel. Dry and mineral forward, with some straw and grass playing with a hit of pepper and clay on the palate. Dry, mineral forward, a bit of ash.
Long finish, ashy and earthy. The crispness of the palate is lost, though its still tasty.
Beautiful and complex on the nose, but a bit one notes on the back palate and finish. Really quite nice, but cant reach as high as some other favorites.
