Distiller: Tomas Garcia Cruz
Selection: Agave Mixtape
ABV: 48.2% ABV
Nose: Solid, well rounded nose. Cream cheese icing, faint cedar and hickory smoke, light citrus and a hint of papaya.
Taste: A faint pinprick of heat, before a wild bouquet unwraps. Lavender, honey, faint lemon zest leads while soft pepper, some orange peel, nutmeg and a dash of confectioners sugar follow up. Faintly smoky, a touch of light umami keep things interesting. Lovely minerality, with a hint of celery on the back palate.
Finish: Long finish, centers more around a bit of soil, minerality and a mild citrus.
Overall: Lovely and complex, this batch has so much going on. My first brush with Tomas and it won’t be my last.
