47.3% abv, 175 liter batch, ER0321TB

Picked this one up on sale at K&L Wines along with the madrecuixe from GH/Ramos. Nose has a strong smell of spearmint gum. The palate has some butterscotch, green pineapple or melon, aloe vera, cooked agave, cinnamon, herbal sweetness and a sweet vegetal character, along with some minerality. Lot of breadth in this expression and plenty to explore. Good to experience some nice tobalá after tasting a few less stellar offerings lately. 4.25 starts out of 5
