Distiller: Lidia Hernandez Hernandez
Bottler: Maguey Melate
Brand: Maguey Melate
ABV: 44% ABV
Nose: Bright, ripe and clean. Honey, melon, agave sweetness, a bright pop of citrus and some jelly bean note. Faint wisp of sour lactic on the nose, making for a acidic, fruity, bright espadin character.
Taste: Medium mouthfeel. Fruity, sweet, a bit of earth and a faint wisp of smoke. Sweet, lots of lemon, honey, pepper, a touch of ash.
Finish: Short, clean finish that’s much smokier than I’d have expected from the nose.
Overall: I like this, but it’s not my favorite Espadin. It seems to have less presence as the tasting goes on, growing a bit weaker and understated. Still good, but there are many espadin I’d place over it.
