Review #1190 – Flor del Desierto Cascabel Sotol

Review #1190 | Agave Review #21 – Flor del Desierto Cascabel Sotol

The Schtick: This is a Sotol produced by Gerardo Ruelas using Dasylilrion Leiophyllum with rattlesnake added to distillation. If Sotol wasn’t already interesting enough, this was a compelling combination that I had to try. Let’s dive in.

Distiller: Gerardo Ruelas Hernandez

Bottler: Flor del Desierto Sotol

Selection: N/A

ABV: 48% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Earthy, floral. Honey, bread, perfumey. Really effervescent and interesting. Strange, to say the least.

Taste: Sweet. Brown sugar, vinegar. Beets, molasses, light ammonia. Dirty, earthy.

Finish: Medium in length, but a bit hot and a good deal of earth. Molasses, pepper, light brine and clay. Interesting.

Overall: Super unique. I kind of waffle between loving it and not loving it, but I like this more than the desert. Crazy unique.

Thanks for reading!
