About this destilado de agave

Derrumbes Guerrero is produced by maestro vinatero Israel Ríos Bucio in Coyuca de Catalán, Guerrero using wild maguey Penca Ancha (Agave cupreata). The agaves are cooked in an underground pit oven, milled using a mechanical shredder, fermented in open-air plastic barrels, and double distilled in a still that is made of a hollowed out higuera blanca tree trunk that sits over a copper pot.

Heat and smoke of roasted jalapeño, poblano and green bell peppers. Funk of prune yogurt and ricotta cheese. Sweetness of chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and christmas baking. Sweet flavors but a dry finish.
The alcohol is a tad to hot, only thing preventing this from becoming #hunnits

49.1% ABV sample

Nose: slight cheese and feta, melon, fresh wild lavender, honeysuckle

Palate and finish: excellent honeydew and cantaloupe, nice soft chalky mouthfeel, some menthol and sage. Moving into the finish some savory elements come in, earth, menthol, that milk chocolate others reference, slight bitter mineral and rock.

Not overly complicated but just all around a solid pour. Really good stuff.

Getting that hazelnut, milk chocolate. Such a savory sip. Loving everything coming out of Guerrero, this ranks high on the list.

Lote 1, 05/21 production date, bottle 50/800, 49.1% abv

Review #8: quality milk chocolate, lightly funky, cream cheese, soft ripe melons. Very in line with Jonny and James’ reviews, it’s savory with a smooth fruit undertone. It is very well rounded and maybe my favorite from derrumbes.

Clean nose with notes of white sugar, honey, slate, and cold granite. The palate has notes of watermelon, dark mango, overripe cantaloupe, and a touch of milk chocolate. Very nice and soft. Syrupy mouthfeel. Lot 1. Bottle 630/800

EDIT AFTER JONNY’S REVIEW
Yes to mango and cantaloupe. Not picking up any watermelon but that’s what makes this a magical journey.

This might be my favorite Derrumbes yet. A close tie for sure with their Michóacan.
Nose – savory cheese and fruit with honey, if that makes sense. Perhaps combined with slightly caramelized bacon fat. Flavors – sweet medium chocolate, honey, honeysuckle from the vine… but this is not a super fruity high ringing bottle… Just when you think it’s going to get very bright and minerally it goes to this delicious round cocoa-honey finish. It’s a beautiful pour.
