Hard to believe this is an espadin

Def. get a smoothness that usually isnt present in wilder agaves. Like others have said, very mineral, clean, slightly sweet and floral. Not much smoke, almost borders on a complex blanco tequila. Solid AF

This is one of my absolute favourites. It’s truly unique, interesting and delicious.

If you could buy minerality in a bottle it would smell like this. It smells like soil and wet gravel after the rain. Forest floor and a hint of cherries.

Dark chocolate on the palate.

Scent: 5/5
Mouthfeel: 4/5
