  • Intro:

    Fermented in open air, using wild yeasts, this expression from Rey Campero uses the Espadin agave which spends time resting in glass before bottling. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Sweet cream, leather, clay, lightly stinky agave. Faint pepper, faint earthiness. Lightly lactic.

  • Taste:

    Rich and earthy. Lots of clay, pepper, minerality. Woody, lots of ash and smoked meats.

  • Finish:

    Long, hot, loaded with ash, clay and some pepper.

  • Overall:

    Nice stuff, but a little rough. The abundance of ash on the finish kind of detracts from the nose and palate for me. That said, I’d happily drink more of this.
