Aroma of wet stones, modeling clay, and some fairly typical espadin herbaceous notes. Taste is decidedly on the drier side of espadins, only moderately sweet, with relatively little smoke on the palate compared to some others in the same style. Some might find that disagreeable, but I personally appreciate this flavor profile – I don’t always need/want the higher sweet or smoke. And the alcohol heat is just about right with a nice peppery spice kick. It’s a solid, if maybe unspectacular product that certainly does no disservice to the style. Now the bottle is clearly an attempt to commercially exploit the Aceves family, and I have no idea how they feel about it, so I can’t/won’t comment on that other than to say it’s a cool looking bottle and worth picking up and trying.
