Review #102: On the nose is sweet sharpie, fresh watermelon, and pinesol. The palate has sweet jalapeno, watermelon juice, pine, lemongrass, grapefruit, lemon oils, vanilla, while the finish has some bitter smokes herbs and black pepper.

This is a really fun mix of the vegetal tepextate and fruity tobala. The jalapeno and sweet watermelon play well off eachother having a back and forth alongside the bright acidity. The finish is anticlimactic and what holds this back for me with a bit too much brash smokey bitterness.
