Single Barrel tasting notes

Samples of barrels #708, 709, 711

"Rancho La Magueyera"

This ranch is in the venerable “Los Altos” de Jalisco. It is by two other ranches, "Los Mangos" and "La Rivera" that have been harvested and made into Ocho. It is at 1600 meters, has grey soil and a ‘terroir’ similar –in general- to that of Tequila Valley. The land is slightly sloping from north to south making it south facing, catching the full effects of the sun. There are Guamuchile trees that bear edible fruit. This tree is specific to this location and grows wild in the clay soil.
