Bottle Date: 01/19
Lot: 1
Bottle #: 315 – 400
100% Maximilian agave
Single distilled

Initial nasal impact is warming. Tropical fruit – papaya and guava hit first. Honey and light oregano follow. There is some watermelon Jolly Rancher present and slight fire pit smoke from the neighbors backyard round out the aroma.
Oily, coating and warming mouthfeel with sufficient alcohol. The papaya and guava carry through to the flavor with honey and dill pickle. The watermelon Jolly Rancher starts to show on the flavor as well. The “smoke” flavor is more akin to sweet smoked/grilled tropical fruit. A really satisfying Raicilla. I’d like a bit more heat, as this comes in at 42.4%, but that is a minor criticism. This is a great sipper, and at the lower abv, would make an excellent introduction to raicilla
