ORIGIN: Inza, Colombia
VARIETAL: Caturra, Timor hybrids (Variedad Colombia, Tabi)
BREW METHOD: Pour-over
Bright & nuanced. Balanced. Acidic (apricot & berry) and darkly spiced toasted oak. Fruity & savory. Sips, all those. Slurps add a grape vibe, some leather underpinnings (particularly to the finish) and a tick of pepper. Very delineated thin notes delivered with almost surgical precision. The aforementioned leathery finish is long and fruity as well + some spiced black tea.
Eyeballs as crisp & clean as it tastes with a nice reddish under-hue. Very berry nosing w/ a tick of dark chocolate & almonds which gets added to the slurp when I go looking for it there. Complex and even transitionally-so in cigar parlance. It's a pretty woman w/ delicate features and strong haunches. I feel, at times, we forget how good a good Colombian can be.
