This ensamble succeeded in balancing all the different species of agave that went into the blend, they harmonize beautifully as each simultaneously complements the other as well as having their solo’s. The first notes to come off the nose were blueberries and bacon, followed by dill pickles, fresh cut sweetgrass with a stone-like minerality overseeing the stage. At first, sipping on this was like taking a sip of fresh river water- very smooth with almost no burn and a very slight minerality with a slightly creamy consistency. Then the alcohol starts to creep in, which introduced more players to the stage- prickly pear and a very light note of raspberry hard candy. The finish had a bright citrus tone with menthol and lidocaine and aloe joining for a surprising encore.

This Ensamble made for a very pleasant surprise. Exceedingly fresh and floral. My first thought was of a breeze through a meadow in summer. Sweet flowers and chamomile paint a charming picture, fleshed out by melon and white peach. Between a chalky mineral character and touch of cinchona bark on the finish, it whets the appetite like an aperitif wine — one that I could drink all day.
