G4 Blanco High Proof 108:
Created by Felipe Camarena, G4 (four generations) is a tequila distilled at El Pandillo Distillery in Jesús María, Jalisco (Nom #1579).
The agaves are cooked in one of two stone ovens on site for 22 hours and crushed in a handmade metal tahona nicknamed "Felipestein" (Frankestein). It is distilled in copper stills for both distillations.
Nose: High proof; needs some time to breath but there are minerals, cooked agave and even some tropical fruit and citrus if you are patient. With enough time, you will also get some of those vegetal notes of dried green spices like sage and thyme
Taste: Soft in feel, but with a punch of heat; black pepper and even cinnamon
Finish: Agave comes back here, but there is still a long and lingering heat.
