About this destilado de agave

Cuish Jabali from Jose Santiago was produced in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. The agaves were cooked in an underground pit oven, fermented with open air yeasts with well water, and double distilled in a copper pot still. This was adjusted to proof using the body and heads of the distillation.

Sampled at Russell’s Tavern in Fremont in Seattle (shout out to Chuey Agave for the bar recommendation). This expression was really great, lots of anise and complex sweetness. I did not take great tasting notes at the time, but this one really stood out. Balance of sweetness, heat, and lingering flavors made this sample a highlight of the evening. Try and track down a bottle if you are lucky enough to find one.
