Medronho

A local specialty from the Algarve, more specifically from the Monchique-region. I’ve tried this at a local pub, and quite liked it.
Nose: clean and slightly spirity, but superbly distilled. Clean. Fruity and estery, clearly eau-de-vie, but with a surprising depth of character.
Mouth: fruity, and sweeter than expected.
Finish: A surprising vanilla-like note suggest barrel maturation, but it’s supposed to be straight from the still.
