Bought this one in Ft. Lauderdale on a work trip and finished it with some friends over the weekend. Very solid bottle for $100– I really like a lot of the stuff Gusto Historico puts out. Nose is earthy and vegetal as the Bicuixe comes on strong. Not much of the espadin on the nose which I prefer. Taste profile is very heavy in the Bicuixe— green, bright, musty, and a bit of licorice on the backend. Forward with Bicuixe and after it’s been sitting a while the Espadin comes through slightly, as you’d expect from a 70/30 blend. Very solid!

Nose: oak, bubblegum
Palate: sweet, wet ash, bubblegum, guava, oak; oily, short finish
Well blended with some heat but it’s manageable. Flavors don’t really jump out at me but is a pleasant sipper; I’ll have to revisit the bottle sometime soon.

Hot and sweet and very tasty. Not sure I could manage too much in one sitting due to the sweetness — maybe that’s a good thing 😊

Yup, Zack nailed the sweetness/cotton candy. Slight teriyaki flavor. Kettle corn and gushers fruit gummies

Nose – Pink bubblegum. Dried apricot. Candied ginger. Very sweet, pleasant nose.

Palate – Cotton candy. Rockets Halloween candy. Perfect heat for me. A tingling, sugary finish that fades to an oaky smoke and slight cojita cheese salinity. A long aftertaste that stays nice and warm.

This stuff is pretty awesome! This was only a 1 oz. sample but a bottle might not last much longer. Yum!
