Strong vegetal aroma with notes of sage. Intensely vegetal and mineral on the palate, which smooths our into dry grass. Minerality sticks around through the finish, along with notes of smoky grass and a bit of heat. Can’t find any hint of the sweetness mentioned in other reviews, overall I found this to be a rough, dry drink. It’s the only sotol I’ve had so far, so I suppose you could say it’s my favorite at this point. I definitely wouldn’t hesitate to buy this again.

La Higuera makes some of my favorite Sotols. Cedrosanum is one of the smoother varieties, with a similar mineral, earthy, and herbal character as the others plus a slight winter/fall spice character and a dash of pillow mint.

Lot 2. Medium smoke on the nose. A hint of alcohol aroma that is very faint. The palate is a bit astringent. A bit hot as well. notes of sage, white pepper, lemon oils.

Lot 2. Delicate and dry. Citrus up front, with minerals and a little nuttiness. Lemon peel with pith. Graphite, walnut, and raspberry. Not as complex as the wheeleri but still nice and interesting.

Tasted side by side with the other 2 varietal offerings.
Quiet, gentle, dry, shows the character of the maker. Some sage is coming through rather nicely, along with white pepper and some small red dry forest berries – almost raspberry, or less sweet like a strawberry. Some touches of fresh leather with a touch of nice fresh polish; a new wallet. Some nice fresh lemon oil, and something that almost somehow reminds me of a light sherry. I’m digging this, just wish the aromatics jumped a bit more. Traces of mineral smoke. Pecan, and yes, cedar. My favorite of the 3.
