About this sotol

Sotol Coyote Durango is produced by Alejandro Solís in Cuencamé, San Antonio, Durango using Dasylirion Cedrosanum. The piñas are steamed with an autoclave and then fermented in wood tubs coated with stainless steel. This sotol is double-distilled in stainless steel stills. Sotol Coyote Durango has distinctive aromas of hazelnut and almond with notes of butter and yeast coming from the fermentation. On the palate, it is semi-sweet with medium intensity and slight minerality.

Coyote Sotol

Sotol Coyote is a social project that involves the true essence of the wild, pure and natural. Clan Coyote’s handcrafted Sotol Coyote is equal parts art and science. Relying on centuries of experience, it is one of the few drinks in Mexico that retains its ancestral method of preparation. Every bottle of Sotol Coyote contains the distilled nectar of a single plant which provides a rich bouquet of unmatched flavor.

  • Overall:

Sotol Coyote Durango Blanco 43% LOTE not listed

Appearance: Thin beads, med-thin legs.
Nose: Mineral, floral, not detecting much sweetness. Lavender, peat, light violet, lemon zest, sausage, wheat, basil, walnut, brazil nut, mildest hint of dried papaya, lime, eucalyptus. Very subtle, not very aromatic. Water and time brought out yuzu sweetness, nice. Some salted butterscotch actually, too, and a touch of fig newton.

Palette: Subtle entry to full sotol flavor on the palette, no smoke really detected. Acidic flavors, paint thinner. Spicier side of sotol gives some era of vibrancy, could see this great in a martini. Finish is dense but long with those spices lingering with ozone/acetone. Time and water help with sweetness and body. Spices hit the tongue tip now but the main body is improved.

Thoughts: First pour, not super impressed. Gonna drop 5 drops of water, cover it, and come back in a few. Yeah, that really helped. From a 3* to a 3.5* probably.

A month later: this really needs to oxidize, it seems. Some complexity hiding in the palette (greater nose) but the sweetness has grown.
