Lot ID: 70L-11-1-21-46.3
ABV: 46.3%

Nose: gamey smell, leather, light cheddar cheese, light caramel sweetness

Palate: caramel, flowers, minerality, goats milk caramel

Finish: light caramel. Strong but tasty minerality

Thoughts: I really like this. The bottle has been open awhile so I’m sure some of the flavors are a bit muted. If you’re looking caramel this is the one. I’ve tasted nothing with a better caramel flavor. So overall the theme for this is caramel. The minerality is also great. It’s hard to describe but that mineral flavor can be harsh and bitter sometimes. This is quite pleasant though

Lot: 100L, 10-1-21, 46.1% abv

Review #39: milk, bubble gum, light cream, and coconut are the dominant notes on the nose and palate. Rosemary, burnt herbs, light smoke, light grassiness, and clay come after and stay until the finish.

I side by sided this with his no brand lechuguilla and they were similar, but this had a bit less of the sweet florals and a bit more herbs. It was also a bit lighter in it’s flavor profile and mouthfeel than I would have liked compared to the no brand, but I’m sure the abv difference had an impact. Definitely worth trying for the uniqueness of the flavor
