La Venenosa Raicilla Costa is produced by Maestro Tabernero Don Alberto Hernández in the village of Llano Grande of the coastal region Cabo Corrientes, 700 metres above sea level. The agave in this Raicilla varies widely from batch to batch. It is roasted in a wood fired adobe oven. It is distilled two times in a Philippino still made out of copper and a hollowed out tree trunk. The flavor is complex, bouncing around between fruit, spice and herbs, eventually settling on sweet spice.

    The first time I tried this raicilla I must say it was really different and I wasn’t sure what to think about it. That blue cheese flavor is fairly pronounced, with smokey and minty undertones. However, I’m now at the end of the bottle and I must say I’m craving another one. This is the kind of raicilla that you really have to get to know, but then you do and grow to love it.

    The batch I tried was 100% agave Rhodecantha and shared many flavors you might find in agave Mexico/Dobadaan mezcals like banana, fig, and fruit leather. But it also shares the familiar raicilla notes of diluted vinegar and sour apple. There is a soft mint flavor here that leans towards toothpaste. I’m still getting into raicillas and this one is just okay for my taste. At 45.5% ABV it tastes a bit watery. Definitely a unique spirit and one that might be interesting in a tasting with other…

    Lot 007 from November 2014. Bottle 36/400. This has a dry, sour, funky aroma. Notes of unroasted coffee beans and wet jungle. It’s good but be prepared for this to end your palate for the night. It’s difficult to drink anything after this one.

    Echo the other reviews on here. Def. more of a blue cheese/burnt rubber taste. When offered to friends, most dont care for it. Have to say that I am sad I purchased the bottle, however, it would be fun to try once. A miss for me
