I'd still prefer wine after a dry run, but this whiskey sure did hit a spot. The balance and complexity of the Machir Bay is just undeniable, evident from the score achieved here. Fresh, zesty fruits are starkly juxtoposed with pastry-like nutty, creamy vanillin notes. The peat straddles the line between salinity and camp fire smoke. A rockstar finish that just lingers with sweet, malty flavour and a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper. Needs a little air to sort out some initial aggression, but once that settles, I felt nothing was out of place. Best entry-level Islay for me! 2019 bottling here. — a month ago

New Aguila Superior Tahona Blanco,
One of the best Blanco’s I’ve had. Don’t be fooled by other so called high end that are sweetened even though they are 💯 % agave or made with the Diffuser method.
I.E celebrity bottles, Clase Azul, etc, etc,,,,
The excellent Cascahuin Distillery in the town or El Arenal is one of Jalisco's very best. The Rosales family is committed to quality and traditional techniques like few of their competitors. The Aguila Superior brand is made at their excellent facility under the watchful eye of Maestro Tequilero Salvador Rosales using the same time tested techniques that the distillery has since 1904. The agave for the Aguila brand was planted and harvested by the brand themselves insuring the quality of every pina. The average age is approximately 8 years and they are all roasted in the traditional brick ovens over steam. Maceration for this product is completed on the Rosales' tahona and fermentation is done in open ceramic vats with natural non-propegated yeast. Distillation is completely on their two small pot stills and only the the finest heart cut retained to be bottled or aged.

Twice this venomous viper has evaded review. She jumps out and thrashes, coils round and inculcates. A devil of a bite too! Seductive, deceptive nose of caramel creme, rosemary, bay leaf and cinnamon roll. Palatal acupuncture ensues, as you slowly succumb to the hot cinnamon oil and scotch bonnet burn of the first phase. Phase two brings cinnamon and grilled peach with brown sugar cobbles and scotch bonnet honey. And finally the nose and close converge in satin vanilla, cinnamon, cracked black pepper and ginger. .
