Distiller: Oscar Hernandez
Bottler: Gracias a Dios
Brand: Gracias a Dios
ABV: 45% ABV
Nose: Pungent, completely herbacious. It’s like a community garden plot. Onion? Check. String beans? Check. Eggplant? Check. Tons of dirt? Check. Lots happening, and all of it reminds me of a vegetable of one kind or another.
Taste: Sweet, lots of green bean, pepper, musty vegetables. Fresh cut grass. Also green bean. It’s really like a liquid green bean.
Finish: Long, peppery, with a bit of heat. At this point it shouldn’t be a huge shock when I mention that there may be a bit of green bean here in this one. Mossy, vegetable, lots of pepper and dirt. Also, green bean.
Overall: If you’ve ever wanted to drink a green bean, this is for you. It could probably be dyed green and sold as a super food in a trendy market somewhere. Anyways, I like this, but it’s completely one dimensional, and green beans are sort of in the middle of my roster of favorite vegetables, so I think this scores about the same. This will be completely up someone’s alley, but perhaps not mine. As this wraps up the series, I want to thank you all for following along. GaD is an interesting brand, and sort of falls in the Bozal category for me. Generally good, very competitively priced, and worth a blind buy, even if you may end up with a risky buy here and there. Nothing bad in the lineup. Much like Rezpiral, I’ll always seek to find a new bottle of GaD when I’m traveling and in markets with better selection than the one I live in.
Thanks for reading!
