Hacienda de Chihuahua Sotol Añejo
Sotol — Chihuahua, Mexico
Tasted October 13, 2021
Rating: 13/23 Bottle kill tasting here. This is going to be more of a rating than a tasting though. My initial thought is that I like the complexity here. There's a lot of earthy and spicy nuance. It's also really light though and there are no great flavors that grab me. I think it's competitive with Prospero Añejo (11), aside from the Prospero's weird flavor. This is more balanced. Fortaleza Blanco Still Strength (17) kicks this to the curb. Partida Añejo (15) is also substantially better than this, though it's closer than the Fortaleza is, more like the range the Prospero is in. I don't have any reason to move this from the 13 I previously had it at based on this comparison. So, a 13 again. Yeah, this seems right between the Prospero and the Partida.
