About this destilado de agave

Rezpiral Arroqueño from Berta Vasquez was produced using maguey Arroqueño (agave Americana) that took 18-19 years to reach maturity. The maguey were milled by tahona, fermented in cypress for 14 days, and double distilled in copper alambique stills. This was initially released as part of Rezpiral Series 7. Produced in January 2022, the final spirit was adjusted using heads and tails to 43.5% alcohol by volume.

Jan 2022 Batch

10/20/22: This is a well rounded, nice, and approachable arroqueño. For me, it hits all of the key notes, and does so very well. It is nice and rich, coating the mouth with stone fruit flavors, and with a deep roasty quality, balanced with a hint of bitterness. The finish is bright and earthy, and quite long, building in intensity and depth with each sip. Delicious.
