The draw however was absolutely perfect.
Another year, another Cosecha offering from Mombacho. This is a release I always look forward to every year especially after being so impressed by the 2012 vintage. For this year’s Mombacho Cosecha 2014, it was a good showing, albeit not fantastic. The main issue I have with this year’s release is the underlying wood bitterness constantly lingering on my palate. Without that, the other flavors are great (rich nuttiness, cedar, baking spices, red pepper spice, minerals). Still worth smoking to especially gauge each year’s offerings. But I am still in search for the initial 2012 vintage’s finesse.
