To let the agave varieties express themselves, the team at Convite use ambient yeast and no additives in their production. This Joven style is a 50-50 blend of Espadín and the wild Madrecuishe varieties. There’s a serious, smoky dried herb punch to the nose, not unlike good peated Islay whiskies. Earthiness and camphor on the palate are lifted by sweet lemon oil and a minty freshness. The finish is cigar and spice, making this an easy crossover point for whisky fans.
