Distiller: Jose Diaz Bustamante

Bottler: La Medida

Brand: La Medida

Selection: N/A

ABV: 47.3% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Roasty and toasty agave. Sweet pineapple, some char, lovely fruit note with some caramel and honey. Sourdough crust, pepper, delicious.

Taste: Rich and roasty once more. Sweet pineapple, mango, pepper, faint brine, hint of clay. Powerful on the palate with some clay essence and a growing smoke character.

Finish: Long finish. More acidic, vinegar forward, with great clay notes and some faint ash smoke. Yum.

Overall: This is really great, showing La Medida has the staying power to maintain an already great track record. Powerful, complex, enticing, Its got it all.
