Distiller: Federico Valentin Alva Ibanez

Bottler: Maguey Melate

Brand: Maguey Melate


ABV: 46.7% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Really fresh and crisp. Fresh cut grass, hay, corn, a hint of barn yard. Fresh zesty citrus and a hint of rain water. Cedar and pine.

Taste: Medium mouth feel. Dry and mineral forward, with some straw and grass playing with a hit of pepper and clay on the palate. Dry, mineral forward, a bit of ash.

Finish: Long finish, ashy and earthy. The crispness of the palate is lost, though its still tasty.

Overall: Beautiful and complex on the nose, but a bit one notes on the back palate and finish. Really quite nice, but cant reach as high as some other favorites.

Thanks for reading!
