Without the brand name, that information is less meaningful than it would be with the brand name.

Correct Babaloo, that is a sugar cane distillate. Aguardiente literally translates to fire water, I might use it as a fire starter but certainly would not ingest it.

We bought a bottle at a little tienda near us.
It was late and and all legal liquor sales were long closed.
It wasn't horrible with a coke.
I don't recommend it straight

My good Mexican friend calls Bronco the cheapest of the cheap. This is what his 100 pesos/day employees drink. It is below bottom shelf liquors. My friend say that you might as well just drink rubbing alcohol from your local pharmacy
