Citric and herbal aromas. Notes of lemon, lime, oregano, and bay leaves on the nose. The palate is bright with honey, cinnamon, brown sugar, and sweet potato french fries. It’s a bit hot on the back of the palate with a light numbing element.

Creamsicle! Not getting normal sotol notes of grass/earthy either. Very clean finish, with some earthy, cotton notes, but not overall complex. Smooth and balanced finish. One of the better of the Gusto Historicos.

This is the expression that I was most looking forward to after loving the Maguey Melate from Hermogenes Vasquez García which was from the same area, but it was my least favorite of the four expressions that I sampled. It’s still well made though. Very one note, I got a lot of pineapple flavor and menthol. Cut grass and a slight earthiness that reminded me of Ancho chilies.
