This single barrel, high proof XA comes from Eladio Montes and does not disappoint. Viscosity coats the mouth with notes of oak, sawdust, dried fruit, vanilla and butterscotch. Let this open up for several minutes and the profile will change as the alcohol burns off. Take your time and enjoy this at La Cata.

Complex aromas of butterscotch, comote, dried fruit ( apricot), and a touch of baking spices. Natural sweetness in the mouth, balanced by a dry finish and medium mouthfeel. Layered and interesting. Although it’s 50% abv, it doesn’t feel “hot”, but it is pungent. A special occasion sipper for sure.

Because this is high proof (50% abv) I used a glass specifically designed for higher proof spirits (the Stölzle "Jarrito" Tasting Glass.) As such, alcohol fumes didn't get in the way of my tasting experience. There's definitely a lot going on here in the aroma. Just like any good natural spirit, don't rush this one. It will continue to open up in the glass and surprise you. At first, I detected white chocolate in the aroma. Then came the cinnamon, barrel spice, and fruit. A little while longer some jalapeño and citrus. The flavor follows the aroma, but this is where the oak and barrel spice become much more obvious. Has a thick and oily texture in the mouth, and the finish lasts for a long time. Thumbs up on this one. You can only get it at the La Cata tasting room in downtown Tequila, though. And it's a single barrel, so it won't last long. I recommend picking one up soon!
