Distiller: Federico Valentin Alva Ibanez
Bottler: Maguey Melate
Brand: Maguey Melate
ABV: 46.7% ABV
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.
