Also really liked this. Pretty green, and the highest ABV from Cruz de Fuego.

Fresh cut jalapeño peppers on the nose. Slightly sweet and smooth on the palate. Very little bite. Overall : Nice!

Bright nose of fresh green peppers. You can smell the organic nose from a few feet away! On the palate there is some candy and a slight sour funk and mid-palate you get the rich agave Tepextate vegetal peppers. Not incredibly complex but a good representation of the plant for the price.

BIG green aromas. Fresh green peppers, bell peppers, and tomatillo on the nose. Viscous and think on the palate. Flavor notes of burnt orange peel, fresh green peppers, and vanilla beans. Medium finish and very smooth throughout. Low acidity with almost no bite whatsoever.
