Tasting Notes

: Sharp, fine. First nose: salt, lemon and pepper wrapped in vanilla and oak. Second nose: blue agave, mineral notes (slate, shale) and peppermint. Third nose: glazed chestnut, damp straw and curry. The whole has a lot of classicism while flirting with single malts. White flowers (lily of the valley, lilac) are there to confirm it.

Palate : Tense, rich. Monopolized by spices (pepper, cloves, cinnamon), it evolves into black licorice and cola. Citrus, lemon in the lead, feed the mid-palate. More vegetal (cardamom, moss), it continues on ash, incense, eucalyptus and agave.

Finish : Long syrupy. With unwavering conviction, it synthesizes the sensations perceived since the beginning. Medicinal (balm, mustard, benzoin), it fiercely claims its Mexican origins by taking us to the plains of Jalisco.
