Lou and his friend Warren get into Terralta Añejo, made at the famous El Pandillo distillery.
If you think the term terroir only applies to wine, the Terralta line will make you think again. Aromas of soil (earth, mushrooms) and minerals remain even in the añejo, mixing pleasantly with barrel flavors such as vanilla, maple, and caramel.
On the nose, Light oak, agave, and fruit. A little bit of berries. Canteloupe, or maybe honeydew, some type of melon for sure. Beautiful aroma, one of my favorite notes and I rarely get it. On the palate, Intense flavor. Spices, minerals, agave. Definitely get the oak, definitely get the earthiness. It’s got a nice balanced sweetness, and a bit of vanilla. I swear I’m tasting almond and maybe butter, but sweet. A tiny bit of mint in the finish for me. Many people consider this the weak spot of the Terralta line but I would have to completely disagree. This is fantastic, full of flavor. I almost feel like the reposado is more subdued in comparison. The first sip was an exposition of flavor and at $51 at my local spot, I’ll keep this in stock forever.
