They were all from El Salvador. Oh, El Salvador…
#1 Apaneca Ilamatepec Suiza: Sweet tobacco, tart dried fruit and rich earth.
#2 Apaneca Ilamatepec El Ausol: Lots of high notes – very tart and sweet with a bit of creamy earth.
#3 Alotepec Metapan La Matanita: Tart, nearly shrill approach leading into earth & chocolate, though slightly out of balance.
#4 Apaneca Ilamatepec San Isidro: Tangy cherry & woodsy earth, dark chocolate, and a light finish.
#5 Apaneca Ilamatepec Los Andes: Tropical fruit, sweet cream, tobacco & dark chocolate. Great balance and nice, round mouthfeel. Delicious.
