Batch number was blank, 48% abv

Review #52: Vanilla, old wet wood, yellow butter and milk chocolate are present on the nose. These all carry over to the palate with just a hint of butytic acid, fresh durian, hazelnut, and some cinnamon, light smoke, and wet soil on the finish.

I really enjoyed this one especially for the price. It seems like on certain earthy sotols i get some butyric acid, but this one it isn’t very dominant so it works well with the profile. There’s some fun stuff going on here with a funky fruit note that I thought of as durian, but otherwise it is not really sweet or fruity. Besides that, there’s nothing too fancy going on with this, but it’s well balanced and easygoing.

* Lot: 03
* ABV: 48%

Wild and grassy on the nose; too grassy for me and it has a strange undergone of something almost like rotting cardboard.

Bold wild flavors and little to no burn despite its ABV. Stone ground wheat, buffalo grass and heavy earthy clay soil. A better overall flavor than I expected from the nose. It’s also worth mentioning that it got a tiny bit better with time and resting.

Unbeatable price and the wife digs it so I keep it in stock for those 2 reasons alone. This is a B- sotol though compared to what all else is out there.

Amazing value on this sotol. Defintely what I was expecting. Very herbacious, nice punch from the abv, sweet, does not linger, but phenomenal for the price. I will definitey get a second bottle.

Sweet jackfruit, vanilla, alcohol, and road tar on the nose. It does not taste as sweet as it smells though, with a nice, balanced herbaceous quality and understated smokiness. Decent burn on the finish but the flavors dissipate quicker than I’d prefer. Oh well, at $20 a bottle, this stuff is a steal.

I like it! When I open a Sotol I expect that flavor of Dasyliron Wheeleri and this has it at a good value! Mucho Gracias!
