Sierra Norte Native Oaxacan Green Corn Single Barrel (No. 224), 45%

Price: $75/375 ml Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This single-barrel release made from an attractive heritage corn has herbal notes of dill, cilantro stalks, and hints of tarragon, with green melon, boiled corn, and dried apple. Sipping it begins with a fruity palate of citrus, raspberry, and green fruits, which are joined by dill, ginger root, pepper, and a touch of bitterness. A hot and spicy finish with remnants of unsweetened fruit.
