Abasolo Ancestral Corn Whisky

$32.99

Size
750ml, bottle

Abasolo Ancestral Corn Whisky hails from Mexico and is a pioneer in its category. Crafted with 100% Cacahuazintle corn, an ancient heirloom grain, and utilizing a unique nixtamalization process, this whisky offers a distinct flavor profile. Matured in virgin oak casks, it boasts rich complexity and a touch of sweetness.

Description

The first sip of Abasolo Ancestral Corn Whisky is a revelation. The initial wave of flavor is dominated by the roasted corn influence, but in a surprisingly delightful way. It’s not harsh or overpowering, but rather a warm and inviting sweetness. The honey and vanilla notes detected on the nose translate beautifully onto the palate, creating a luxurious and smooth texture. The nixtamalization process likely contributes to this sweetness, adding a unique depth of flavor not found in traditional whiskies. The virgin oak casks make their presence known with subtle tannins, offering a touch of structure and a hint of peppery spice on the tongue. Compared to whiskies crafted from barley, Abasolo offers a lighter and more approachable experience, making it perfect for those new to the world of whisky or those who enjoy a sweeter spirit.

The finish of Abasolo Ancestral Corn Whisky is both lingering and surprising. The sweetness slowly fades, leaving behind a touch of honey and a hint of spice from the oak. But unlike some whiskies, there’s a refreshing quality to the finish, a subtle echo of the black tea detected on the nose. This unexpected twist adds to the intrigue of Abasolo, making it a truly unique and memorable experience.
