After sipping a small sample on multiple occasions I’ve been unable to enjoy this. On paper it sounds amazing.. puntas with Tepeztate, Tobala, and Espadin! I really wanted to get into this one. For me, there is a Windex note that is hard to overcome. It is also kind of a smoke bomb. The high ABV isn’t a problem here, it is the flavors. It is not very complex and has a short dry finish. Not all puntas are created equally and I cannot imagine having a full bottle of these puntas. This is the first release from Gusto Historico that I can’t really get behind – the other releases all range from good to incredible. Lot VC.05.21.PTTE
