Lot 1. There is a LOT going on here! This Raicilla is somehow smoky, sweet, herbal, earthy, mineral, vegetal, funky, and savory all at once. I love it!! I’m becoming a big fan of Raicillas and this is one of my favorites. My tasting notes were BBQ Sauce, olive brine, cinnamon, guacamole, celery, cilantro, old leather, drying tobacco leaf, breadfruit, and wet dog. The fact that it’s distilled in a hollowed out trunk of the sacred tree that migrating monarch butterflies choose to congregate on is very cool and adds some magic to the story as well.
