Sacapalabras bottle (brand in UK covering Lalocura). Eduardo Angeles and all details the same. NOM-0296X.
Apple, grasses, mild clay on the nose. Smells refreshing and light. Taste is harder to decipher but interesting. Some fruit, mild sweetness, also sour notes. Smooth but also a mild creamy feel.
