Youthful and clear, with medium sweet grassy nose and mild scent of smoke, sharp alcohol initial taste with minty agave full body, with mild spice and floral undertone finish and aftertaste.

The entire HDC Sotol lineup is rich with flavor and highly recommended.

Nice soft banana mild minty start, good boozy initial taste that rounds off into a fruit rind, and slight smoke lingering finish

Everytime I stroll down the tequila aisle of my local liquor store I cross my fingers something new will jump out and catch my attention. This time it was this sotol, a sweet canteen style bottle with a little red wax sealing fixed leather strips to it's textured glass walls. A great presentation indeed. After chilling and cracking the seal I poured about 3oz in a standard glass gebralter and caught it's initial aroma as I swirled it's seemingly low viscosity character around a little. A nice grassy, vegetable, highly agave aroma was a nice surprise, I expected a pungent ethanol for it's category and price.
My first taste was a surprise, the viscosity seemed to highten upon entry and laid a smooth clean gloss over my tongue, the flavor being highly organic, not so much citrus but more of a wild vegetable. The finish was equally as pleasant and gave the bite I was hoping for, I like to be reminded I'm drinking a high proof spirit, after all.
Despite previous reviews I was pleasantly surprised with every aspect of this new experience, and plan on buying more in the near future.

I had to remind myself I am tasting a wild agave and not a 100% blue agave tequila.. I wanted to try this because of recommendations from friends.

Aside from the very pleasant aroma, this wasn't a pleasurable experience for me, and mostly bitter from beginning to end. I tried to keep my ratings based on it's own wild agave qualities..But to be perfectly honest, thats tough to do.

Im not a huge fan of mescal, and this only perpetuates it.. If you like more alcohol presence, bitterness throughout, and a pungent finish. This is is the way to go. If you like mescal, this is great. But it's just not for me.

Tasted in a caballito on April 3, 2008 showing lasting legs on the glass. Sotol Hacienda De Chihuahua Plata Color: clear Aroma: citrus Taste: citrus peel & rinds with a mint taste, a light mouthfeel and slight burn finish This was an accidental first experience tasting a Sotol. I was at the liquor store and recognized the bottle, though did not realize it was a Sotol rather than Tequila. I am not a big fan now of Sotol as it tasted very bitter to me neat and even the bitterness came through in cocktails.
