Distiller: Romulo Sanchez Parada
Bottler: Rey Campero
Brand: Rey Campero
ABV: 48.4% ABV
Nose: Bright on the nose! So much fruit, clay, a bit of latex, sweet buttercream, cotton candy and more. Crisp, fruity, effervescent – a hint of rain on the horizon.
Taste: Sweet, crisp, acidic and spritely. There’s a great combination of earth, soil, clay, crisp fruits and that iconic Tep note. A bit ashy on the back palate, great pepper character keeps things well balanced.
Finish: Long finish, more earthy and peppery here than the fruity explosion of the nose, but it balances really nicely and yields quite a bit of complexity.
Overall: Overall, I really love this. Sweet, but not too sweet. Fruity, but not too fruity. Savory and zesty – but again not too much. The smoke is just right, and this is an Ensamble to remember.
