Distiller: Julio Topete Becerra
Bottler: Maguey Melate
Brand: Maguey Melate
ABV: 50% ABV
Nose: Sweet, fruity, lactic, savory – all over the board. Extremely interesting. Orange, vanilla bean, sour and lactic complexity. Wild and interesting. Whew.
Taste: Fruity at first with red berries, currant, strawberry and then a glue and varnish note. Interesting and wild. Some lactic influence on the back palate. A bit of pepper. Faintly musty.
Finish: Grows a bit more bitter on the finish. Sweet at first, then bitter, growing more musty. Reminiscent of some funky cheeses, sweet like gruyere, with some garlic and salinity.
Overall: Wild, interesting, fun.
