BALAM Raicilla de la Sierra
From Benito Salcedo Rios in El Mosco, a tiny pueblo (pop. 148) at 3200 feet in the Sierra Madre, south of Mascota. Benito is an agronomist, and you can taste his feel for the plant: lechuguilla (agave Maximiliana), a wild agave he working on cultivating for sustainability. Focused and very cleanly distilled.
