  • Intro:

    Distilled by Lidia Hernandez Hernandez in Santiago Matatlan, this Espadin agave was distilled on copper. Batch LID-ESP-001

  • Nose:

    Bright, ripe and clean. Honey, melon, agave sweetness, a bright pop of citrus and some jelly bean note. Faint wisp of sour lactic on the nose, making for a acidic, fruity, bright espadin character.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel. Fruity, sweet, a bit of earth and a faint wisp of smoke. Sweet, lots of lemon, honey, pepper, a touch of ash.

  • Finish:

    Short, clean finish that's much smokier than I'd have expected from the nose.

  • Overall:

    I like this, but it's not my favorite Espadin. It seems to have less presence as the tasting goes on, growing a bit weaker and understated. Still good, but there are many espadin I'd place over it.
