Distilled by Isaias Martinez Juan, this Espadin is tahona ground, distilled on a copper still and bottled in San Juan Del Rio. It's new to my area, and looked enticing so I picked it up. It's taken me a couple months to work through it, along with some cocktails for guests, so let's see how it is.
Bright vanilla bean, smoked salt, pineapple and pepper. Clay. Complex.
Thin mouth feel, some heat. Pepper, soapstone, pineapple clay.
Long, peppery and loaded with pineapple, vanilla bean and clay.
Perfectly capable, this espadin manages many things, though excelling in few. No flaws, really, though. It’s $40 for a Liter, and I know I need another.
