Batch: 01COY, Bottle 52/500, 46% abv Batch date: 3/21

Tough to locate this brand in Southern California, but worth seeking it out. I got my first tastes of this brand a couple years ago at a Mexico in a Bottle event and was really impressed by the quality across their different expressions. These expressions that I picked up from Barkeeper in Silverlake reinforce that first impression.

Nose: Burnt sugar, vanilla, spice, and faint smoke

Palate: Lots of strong heat from the beginning to the end. It makes you think it is a higher abv for all of that black pepper heat. Strong vanilla notes, mild oak, sweet smoke, and backend flavors of allspice and sarsaparilla. Nose matches the palate more strongly than any expression that I can recall. The impact of that heat is what brings this down a smidgen, but it isn’t unbalanced or unpleasant, just a bit overwhelming on the palate initially. After opening up, those range of flavors linger on the palate a good long while.

Phenomenal expression. Good bit of vanilla on the nose and lots of earthy notes on the palate. Nice weighty mouthfeel. A complex but with an approachable finish. Maestro Leo Hernández does it again.
