  • Intro:

    Produced once or twice a year, this Bicuixe from Candido Garcia Cruz uses agave harvested around the full moon. Distilled on copper after fermentation in cyrpus wood tank with wild yeasts, this 400 liter batch is sure to be a treat. Let's give it a go.

  • Nose:

    Cocktail onions, some vinegar, hint of cheese and olive. This is a 180 from the Espadin, and there’s a lot going on.

  • Taste:

    Whoah, not nearly as funky as I expected. After an intriguing nose, this hits the palate quite gently. Lots of lemon, cream cheese frosting, really effervescent lavender, some pepper and a bit of cedar. Not aggressively sour in the least, and the smoke is off doing something else - not a smoky palate at all.

  • Finish:

    The finish is long, and some of those funky notes are finally showing up, but gently. This isn’t a brash mama jama. Sweet cream, lemon and orange peel, more lavender and maybe some cardamom. Long finish that lingers out.

  • Overall:

    This is really quite interesting. Drinking blind, I wouldn’t have any idea it is a bicuixe, but I’m a fan. While I think I give the nod to the espadin, this is very good itself.
