Review #1348 | Raicilla Review #52

Distiller: Santiago Díaz Ramos

Bottler: Las Perlas

Brand: Las Perlas

Selection: N/A

ABV: 48% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Sweet vinegar and oil, light brine. Not a lot gets by the vinegar note, save for a little olive.

Taste: Sweet, lots of confectioners sugar, some woody ash, some vinegar and a nice mineral note. Mouth feel is a bit on the thin side, but proof is just right.

Finish: Medium to long – ashy and smoke forward, with some wood, minerality, faint sweetness and some pepper

Overall: Really interesting transformation from vinegar to an ashy mineral bomb. I really like this.

Thanks for reading!
