Distilled by Simeon Apolonio Ramirez, this ensamble of Arroqueno, Espadin and Tobasiche was produced on a single copper refrescadera in the village of San Agustin Amatengo.
Earthy, savory and loaded with minerality. Some fun cheese notes - more fragrant than a typical counter cheese, lending additional character to the nose.
Funky and fun. String cheese, rich toasted agave, rising bread, some vanilla bean and a hint of celery salt. Lovely and complex. Ash on the back palate with plenty of complexity to stay interesting.
Long finish, straying more ash, mineral and clay forward. The smoke note is more wood than chemical.
I like this and the character is great. It doesn’t reach as high as some other bottling for me, but the quality is undeniable and I enjoy it quite a bit. Very good destilado.
