Notes: Sotol La Higuera

Sotol La Higuera Dasylirion Cedrosanum - 48%

Mezcal Reviews: Sotol La Higuera Cedrosanum is produced in Aldama, Chihuahua by Master Sotolero Gerardo Ruelas. The sotol plants are cooked in an outdoor conical oven and then milled by hand with axes. The fibers are naturally fermented with wild yeasts in 1,000-liter pine vats before being double distilled in copper alembic stills.


Notes: Surprised at the fruit forward nose - berries, cherries. Woody notes as well - cedar. Earthier vegetal notes too. Well layered. Slow and full on the palate with distinct waves that get progressively more dry. Agave syrup, stone fruit, pine, lavender, incense.

Pour This For: Falls more in the mezcal camp than one for tequila lovers.

Score: 6 (Solid) Value is definitely here. The notes lack some intensity, but its defined and enjoyable if not a little subdued.
