Distiller: La Fortaleza
Bottler: La Fortaleza
ABV: 45.7% ABV
Age: 16 Months
Nose: Rich and heavy on the nose. Lots of brine, minerality, salinity, a hint of smoke. Sweet cream, roasty agave, pineapple and a lovely agave funk as well.
Taste: Sweet and rich on the palate as well. Coats nicely, brings lots of flavor right away. Soapstone, brine, a strong pepper character. Sweet agave, honeydew, caramel and a faint ash quality. Delightfully complex.
Finish: Long, sweet and roasty. Sourdough crust, honey, slivered almond, pineapple, wood smoke and a hint of minerality. Agave stank present but dialed way back. Hangs for a long time on the palate, slowly departing in a really pleasant manner.
Overall: This is my first brush with the Winter Blend but its a really enjoyable experience, and Im a big big fan of this bottling. Really strong work on this one.
