Distiller: Felipe Arteo Cortes
Bottler: Mal Bien
Brand: Mal Bien
ABV: 48.82% ABV
Nose: Vibrant and funky on the nose. That Karwinskii character is present in spades, refuses to be ignored. Hay, grass, spearmint, jalapeño peppers, some pepper. Whew – it’s grassy and full of fun. Tropical fruits.
Taste: Sweet at first on the palate before slate, some pepper, minerality, bell pepper, jalapeño and grass kick up. Pure, wild delight.
Finish: Long finish. Pepper, ash, cedar forward with a woody, herbal finish. More jalapeño and bell pepper. Vegetal, fun, spritely.
Overall: I love this expression from the Cortes gang, and it’s a great representation of the Karwinskii agave
