Eerily similar to this producer’s arroqueno, that makes me very happy. Super clay driven, meaty, vanilla buttercream, ginger, clove. Chicarones, white chocolates, piloncillo, a savory herb, just so dark. Old stone building, lots of leather.

Palate: A little hot which gives a sweet spice character, but once acclimated it’s a denser texture with a pretty long finish that almost has a floral soap aspect. Agave sweetness is huge, complexity isn’t super high but its so unique anyways that my attention is well captivated.

Massively dark and rich, wow. I’m really amazed at how much the “hand of the maker” is showing, this is very similar to the amazing arroqueno he produces as well. Hard to rate.
