Distiller: Juan Antonio Coronel Maya
Bottler: Maguey Melate
Brand: Maguey Melate
ABV: 48.2% ABV
Nose: Incredibly potent. Waves and waves of warm buttercream, orange slice candies, paper mache, blueberry and faint stank
Taste: Moderate mouthfeel, a lovely combo of blueberry, vanilla bean, orange and some varnish.
Finish: Long finish, more ashy here but complex and lively.
Overall: The nose on this bottling may be the most effervescent thing I’ve ever smelled. It immediately, pungently and delightfully saturated the room I was tasting in. It’s wild. Super sweet and dessert on the nose, growing more closed and ashy by the finish. So unique for a Cuixe.
