Lote: DE 01/22, 46%

Nose: Punchy and lactic, a strong alcoholic aroma; glue, permanent marker, cherries, mint, pine, lemon, cleaning liquid, and some acetone to round out the intensity.

Palate: A deep, dark body; a little bittersweet. This is like a red wine all the way, with some ripe plums, grapes, mangoes, and the unwashed dirt from all the fruits. A bit of a subtle, meaty oiliness as well, kind of like a ham, bologna, or mortadella.

Finish: Woody with some bittersweetness; raw honey, dark chocolate, cough syrup, raisins, mango peel, and some orange rind.

Good; a very interesting Espadin! Reminds me so much of the Derrumbes Oaxaca expression: dark and woody. However I like my Espadins more on the bright and citrusy side, so this took some getting used to. Always fun to try a different take on these agaves to appreciate the styles of all the different Maestros.
