Distiller: Gerardo Ruelas Hernandez
Bottler: La Higuera
Brand: La Higuera
ABV: 47.7% ABV
Nose: Asparagus honey green onion pepper cream. Weird, grassy, floral and vegetal. Paired with that nice creamy sweetness, almost like chream cheese frosting, this is a real interesting nose.
Taste: Thin mouth feel but some nice complexity here. Grassy, lots of green onion and scallion. Fresh bell pepper and more cream cheese frosting. Meaty in a fun way, sort of like summer sausage, which is a bizzare complement to the veggies and sweetness.
Finish: Minty, sweet and vegetal on the exit. Lots of grassy character.
Overall: Wild and fun and delightfully complex for a Sotol. I’ll have to try more expressions from Higuera.
Thanks for reading!
