About this raicilla

Puntagave Rustico is produced by Victoriano Joya in the coastal region of Cabo Corrientes, 700 meters above sea level. Agave Rhodacantha is roasted in an earthen pit, double distilled in a Philippino still made from copper and a hollowed-out tree trunk. The agave Rhodacantha transforms on the nose to an aroma like parmesan cheese with a green earthy touch.

I bought Puntagave’s Sotol first and it was decent but didn’t blow me away. I was somewhat hesitant to try the Raicilla since it’s a bit more expensive but Puntagave says it’s their “In house favorite” so I decided to give it a shot. I was NOT disappointed. I haven’t tried a lot of Raicillas that I’m crazy about but I really enjoy this one. It packs a ton of flavor. Fruity, creamy, and a very distinct but pleasant cheesy aftertaste. I definitely recommend giving this one a shot.
