Distilled by Valente Garcia for Palanqueros, this ensamble combines the Espadin, Bicuixe and Mexicano agaves for double distillation on copper. This particular expression was bottled at still proof.
Crisp and clean, fresh on the nose with notes of rainwater, pepper, a bit of vegetal karwinskii pop and light vanilla. Bell pepper, some light salinity, fresh jalapeno.
Super sweet initially on the palate. Sweet fruits, confectioners sugar, rock candy, pepper and peach. Bell pepper and more jalapeno storm in quickly, bringing a bit of paint/clay with it. Mild heat on the palate, coats nicely.
Long, ashy, peppery finish. Light chemical notes, growing a bit savory. Pepper, soil, peach and plum and pear. A hot tingle of ethanol on the back palate.
Overall this is a fun expression but it's not amazing. The distinct agaves don't seem to mesh super well here, but it is a fun rollercoaster to try and hold on to.
