Don Beto Bacanora Silver

Don Beto Bacanora Reserva de la Casa is 100% de Agave, and produced in Rancho Las Quasmas, San Pedro de la Cueva, Sonora.

Bacanora is an exquisite spirit which forms part of the culture and tradition of Sonora, produced by artesanal methods by the "hombres conquistadores" who pull from the soil the heart of the maguey to extract the juices which, once distilled, give life to a drink which Mayahuel, the goddess of maguey, decided to plant in the best regions of Mexico, in order that its flavor and aroma constitute a special reserve to be enjoyed only by those gods who accompanied her on important occasions.

I asked a friend from Sonora to bring me a good bottle from his recent trip home. This is my first Bacanora experience so I have nothing else to compare it to, but after sampling it several times it presents in the Riedel glass as follows:

Clear with a silvery cast it offers an unfamiliar rubbery latex aroma with strong smoke, pine resin and earth. It tastes like a very young spirit. Initially sharp on the tongue, it is quite bitter with an significant alcohol bite. The flavours in the body soften somewhat, and the bitterness abates but the smoke and earth continue to dominate. Finish is lengthy - strange green agave, bitter licorice and more smoke.

This is a product which will require some exposure to truly appreciate.
