Distiller: Don Rogelio Martinez Cruz, Leopoldino Miranda
Bottler: Del Maguey
Brand: Del Maguey
ABV: 46% ABV
Nose: Hugely sweet and fruity bouquet on the nose. Mango, pineapple, lightly meaty, loaded with minerals and sweetness. One of the most vibrantly fruity noses I’ve encountered.
Taste: Sweet and creamy. Minerality, fresh pineapple. Apple, pear, faint smoke. Some clay. Lightly woody. So much going on.
Finish: Long, powerfully ashy. The fruitiness from the nose is gone and this transforms into a crushed stone and ash smoke bomb on the departure.
Overall: Wow, really interesting. Starting fruity, ending smoky. Quite the transition. Delightful.
