Aromas of dirty clay and new rubber tires. This has got Sola de Vega written all over it but there is a chemical note which isn’t great. I had to scroll up to see which agave this was because I’m not detecting anything specific (to be fair I think Tobala varies quite a bit in flavor). Slight heat which leaves a coating on your tongue. Some decent minerality and notes of vanilla soft serve ice cream. Gets a bit better as you sip it but doesn’t stack up to some of the other Sola de Vega releases I’ve enjoyed in the past.

Lot AE-XXSMS/F. Bottle 343/450. Lots of slate and minerals on the nose. It’s hard to get past those aromas. The palate is light and a bit thin. Notes of slate, dried prunes, figs, and a little diesel. I was super excited to try this one, but it’s unfortunately not my favorite. I tasted this alongside a Vago Ensamble en Barro from Tio Rey and the Vago below this one away (at about half the price). I’d honestly prefer the regular Alipus en Barro release over this one as well.
