Lot VR.12.21.Mcx, 49% abv

Review #67: Nose has light fruits, like apples, that have been dusted in cinnamon. The palate has sweet licorice, more cinnamon covered apples, rosemary, fresh soil, root beer, burnt caramel, and leafy greens. finish has some pine and more herbs.

I’ll admit there’s more to this that I didn’t have the chance to pick apart. It kept on developing and before I knew it, my drink was gone, haha. The nose was hiding a bit for me, but the palate was bursting with flavor. Great mix of herbal flavors with just a touch of light sweetness to balance it. One of my favorite pours of one of my favorite agaves.
