Like James Brown, this is funky!! Lots of lactic acidity with notes of heavy cheese and hints of earth, spice, and some overly ripe fruit. The interesting thing I find with Bacanoras is that they can express overly ripe tropical fruit even though they are produced in the desert with zero fruit for influence, and this one highlights that situation.
While the texture is thin on the palate, the flavor expresses everything I noted in the aroma. The finish brings a noticeable candied note, almost like Jolly Rogers apple, and continues to become sweeter. Delicious and complex without being overwhelming.

With over twenty five years of experience in the agave distillate industry as an importer and brand owner, Juan Pablo of Tequila Specialists launched Puntagave to express the distilled flavors of Mexico. Each with depth of flavor and character but still very approachable for those who are just venturing outside of the world of tequila.
