El Rayo is made using a combination of highland and lowland agave. Predominantly highland agaves are used in production which harnesses floral and citrus flavours. This is then anchored by the more peppery and vegetal tones that come through with subtlety from the lowland agaves.
The combination of agaves provides a balanced and smooth drinking experience. Expect delicate flavours on the nose, a buttery and viscous mouth feel that ends with a gentle yet empowering finish packed full of agave flavour.
Like the plata maintains a certain viscosity in the glass with long legs evident. On the nose, expect a burst of salted caramel and a subtle hint of smoke from the barrels. Delicate mouthfeel with gentle flavour of almond. Finishes smooth with a little orange zest and vegetal agave flavour
