Proof66 Notes

Sotol is an agave-based spirit using the agavacea plant sotol... a variant of agave that grows only in the high desert of Chihuahua. The plants are grown on a 15yr cycle yielding a single bottle.

Haciende de Chihuahua plata is the un-aged expression described as "extremely smooth and fresh."

This sotol was awarded the Bronze Medal in the 2008 Agave Spirits Challenge.

This stuff is an interesting alternative to tequila. The flavors are a little different- seems a bit more floral and earthy and a touch less sweet to me than a typical tequila. I do wish it were bottled ar a higher percent to get more aromas going. As it is, I am quite happy to sip or mix this stuff. At $20 it's not expensive.

(3.25 out of 5). I should preface this by saying I've tried many mezcals and tequilas, but very few sotols- Hacienda de Chihuahua is the only brand I've ever tried. This spirit is pretty good- cheap ($20 or so, if you can find it, which isn't easy) and nicely packaged. Smells of agave, mint, and alcohol, tastes about the same. I should also add that this is bottled at a mere 38%, which is a shame- makes it seem slightly watery. For me, it doesn't have the smooth complexity of good tequila or the intense complexity of mezcal, but perhaps I need to try more brands (though there aren't many that are commercial available). Worth a shot for the agave enthusiast. I would try it if you see it, but I wouldn't necessarily track it down.
