Distiller: Tequilera Los Generales
Bottler: Tequilera Los Generales
Brand: El Relingo
ABV: 40% ABV
Nose: Vanilla, faint varnish, sweet gummy bear candies, apples and pear, baking biscuits. Really nothing too bad here save for a faint varnish note.
Taste: Sweet, medium mouth feel. Honey, baking bread, light cocoa and some roasty agave. Faint pepper. A bit of heat springs up at the end with a faint chemical note, but nothing flagrant.
Finish: Short but entirely pleasant. Honey, pepper, bit of lime and mango to go with cake batter.
Overall: Honestly, this is perfectly fine. The label really scared me, like a lot, but this is entirely fine neat and what small flaws exist are completely mitigated with a well, or even mediocre, cocktail. Could have been so much worse. It’s whatever anejo, but not great. Don’t think it’s great. Also don’t spend $40 on this. Spend it on something else.
