Notes: Don Cuco Sotol Reposado


Don Cuco Sotol Reposado - 36%


Sotol is not distilled from agave, but from the Sotol plant or desert spoon. The most common sotol varietal is Dasylirion wheeleri, Asparagaceae, a plant that grows wild throughout the Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico. The sotol plant is native to the distinctive Sonoran and Chihuahuan high desert climates and has long been a vital plant as a source of food and fiber. Sotol shares characteristic similarities to its cousins in spirit, Tequila and Mezcal.


A few different outlets have made the claim that Don Cuco Sotol was the first to export and import sotol.

 

Notes: The nose is candied and floral - caramel forward. More of the same on the palate - generic sweets and florals - touch of earthy bitterness. Really suffering here from the proofing down. Linear and light structure. Short in the finish.


Pour This For: The lighter touch with wood in the aging process would work for tequila reposado fans.


Score: 3 (Anything Else?) Too watered down for a cocktailing ingredient. Stand alone, there's not much to dig into.
