I was keen to purchase the edition with Tepextate, but Travis Heights Wine & Spirits in Austin was fresh out so I grabbed this. Initially it was very high dry Karwinskii, almost on the acid side. Later is really opened up and ‘smoothed’ out. Classic Miahuatlan minerals, wet stone Karwinskii spice. Not something I’d want a whole bottle of again, but can’t complain. Big fan of this producer, have a bottle of his Tobala and Bicuixe stashed away.
