Third tipple.

Was perhaps a little too excited to try this. Over time have tasted a great many Cucharillo, and haven’t had a steady streak of Dasylirion from Oaxaca that have impressed. This stood out immediately and had not only a unmistakeable aroma which brought about visions of soil and struggle, but flavor on the tongue that didn’t disappoint at all. Multi-flavor combination that took a good while to unpack. I’ll be going for a bottle of this soon, especially seeing the production was only 150 liters. Amazing.

Definitely different. Intense basil and thyme notes. Almost pizza-esque with the amount of rosemary on the finish. Black pepper… some faint pineapple. Glad I only had a dram and not a whole bottle.

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.
