About this sotol

Flor del Desierto Sierra is made by Jose Armando Fernandez Flores is made from Dasylirion Wheeleri grown and distilled in the Madera region of Chihuahua. The plants are cooked in shallow pits fueled by oak firewood, shredded by axe, knife and finally cow
stomping before being open-air fermented in wood tanks and distilled in clay.

Flor del Desierto Sotol

Flor del Desierto began in 2011 by a small group of friends after one of them, Flor, won a baking competition using sotol as the special ingredient. All sotol plants, also known as the desert spoon or sereque, are wild-harvested in the Coyame Desert and mountains of Madera. Each one of Flor del Desierto's Sotols are distinguished by the region they’re produced in, the stills where they are distilled and the hands of each sotol maker, whose own techniques and years of experience give their spirits a unique character.

This is my favorite spirit I’ve ever had, just give it a try. First bottle I had was 47.5% (lot 5) but I just picked up a bottle at Astor in NYC and it’s 45% have yet to try this new bottle.

note: chalk, limestone, sandalwood, white pepper, eucalyptus, dry earth

palate: full, rich mouthfeel. a green sweetness or a sweet greenness? licorice, more white pepper, a touch of bitterness. lots of subtle flavors, nothing too huge, but in a pleasant way.

long, lingering finish. really like this.

One of best sotols ive has. Spoiler alert: ive only had 9-10. Very little bite, earth and rubber tire on the nose, herb garden on the palate… very smooth and short finish. Nice

Minerally and woody, advantage over the rest of their lineup.

Fruity pepper with notes of thai chili and galangal. Agree with the other review that this might be my new favorite sotol. Didn’t catch the batch info unfortunately but will be hunting down a bottle for myself soon.

Batch AA01, bottle 456. 45%ABV.

Appearance: Quicker legs, thinner. Slowly more beads form and drop.
Nose: More vegetal green nose for a sotol. Definitely hits with some sage, basil, aniseed, fennel, genepi, tangerine, chlorophyll, orgeat. Some vague walnut, spearmint, Zirbenz, white pepper. Nice sweetness on the tongue, wow. Great mouthfeel and control of ABV. Greenness and sweetness are there. “Hot rain on cement” minerality I get in most sotols is present but subdued. Smoke is generally low and dry, adding tickles of pepperyness. Finish is long and satisfying, showing off the anise side of the profile.

Might be my new favorite sotol – wow. Great stuff! Can’t wait to follow more from this producer. Fans of Mezcalero Joel Barriga’s Espadin would probably love this.
