I admit I am a Mexicophile. I was predisposed to liking this! I get the heady amber first, underscored by the spiciness of hyssop and coriander. There is a freshness that lingers — reminiscent of the understated prickly pear fruit, yet not traditionally “fruity.” This is a brew as complex as that ancient city. Good autumn wear, for the spiciness.

A lazy, warm deep green scent with a thick aquatic undertone: Spanish moss, evergreen and cypress with watery blue-green notes and an eddy of hothouse flowers and swamp blooms.
Tulips, peony, fresh flowing water and crisp green grasses.
Reminiscent of hothouse blooms on a humid night, ripe, but touched with decay. Sweet honeysuckle and jasmine with a hint of lemon and spice.
A gentle, soothing blend of cherry blossom, white sandalwood and star anise.
