  • Intro:

    Distilled by Gregorio Hernandez Lopez in Ejutla, this unusually high proof release comes to us as an ensamble combining Tobasiche and Barril.

  • Nose:

    Powerful and bold without a trace of ethanol. Fresh paint, some varnish and clay, sweet honey and a touch of ash.

  • Taste:

    Bold on the palate, rich and viscous. There's not a doubt to the drinker this is high proof - it's not punishing but the ethanol is certainly not hiding. Paint-y, varnish-y, creamy and faintly chemical. Ash smoke, burning wood, a touch of pepper.

  • Finish:

    Long finish that hangs on the jaw and in the back of your throat. Smoky and creamy, sweet with a tough of burning rubber and more pepper.

  • Overall:

    Bold and interesting, this particular release is not short on flavor, although it does suffer a tad in terms of complexity. It's notably drinkable, so go easy on this one - it'll sneak up otherwise.

  • Score:
