Sotol, known as the "desert spoon", is a plant that grows wild in Chihuahua in northern Mexico. The plants are matured an average of 15 years before harvest, then are roasted and steamed before double-distillation in smaller, copper pot stills. Ocho Cientos Reposado is aged 8 months in barrels that once held George Dickel Tennessee Whiskey.

Tasting Notes

"This astoundingly viscous spirit is quite buttery on the nose, oozing scents of caramel-pecan-cinnamon-buns. The palate gives way to the sotol's rustic earthiness, with cooked dill, chili peppers, and black pepper. The heavy weight is cut somewhat by a fresh eucalyptus/menthol characteristic, even more present here than with the blanco expression. "
