Mild aromas are vaguely fruity with apples and other orchard fruits, and crisp autumn leaves.
The flavors are bold, leading with baking and savory spices like mace, ginger, and green peppercorns. Bright and zesty herbs like hoja santa and thyme add to the intensity. The finish rounds out with vanilla caramel, roasted coffee, and dried peach notes.
Made from the common Potatorum variety in Puebla, similar to Tobala in Oaxaca, the agaves are cooked in an in-ground pit, crushed by hand and with a small mechanical mill, fermented with ambient yeasts in stainless steel tanks, and double distilled in a small copper pot still.
