NETA Bicuixe Jabali Ensamble Texas Selection

The Schtick: Distilled by Celso Garcia Cruz, this Ensamble of Magueys was produced with well water on copper for NETA, and chosen specifically by an ethusiast group in Texas. Adjusted with puntas/colas, this combination of Jabali and Bicuixe should be quite a treat.
