Excerpt: I can’t really say I love this. I like the attempt at innovation, but it falls short, and feels more like a gimmick in the end. I’m not really upset, since I bought this at a hefty discount, but I wouldn’t buy it again. It’s just bad mezcal, in my opinion.
Excerpt: Heavy herbal/floral notes that play out over a strange base of roasted mushroom and wet forest floor. All told, this might work as a mixer in an herb-heavy cocktail, but on its own the lack of both focus and balance leave the imbiber wanting.

Produced by Ignacio Martinez in San Dionisio Ocotepec using Espadin, this Mezcal is distilled and infused with Damiana before undergoing a second distillation. This is a new concept to me, as I've had few infused Mezcals, so I'm looking forward to the experience. Let's dive in.
Really rich honey, pineapple, apples, cotton candy and a funny weird clove note I don’t really usually get in a Mezcal. Almost some sour cream. Grassy. Outdoors after a rainstorm. Lots of really interesting, but also bizarre, notes.
Thin on the palate, but no heat. It’s sweet, quite a bit of vanilla, some lime, weird custard like note. Bit of grassy note in there, with some clove. Weird.
Short, but interesting. Really creamy once again, but not sweet here. Creamy clove, heather, a weird grassy note. Some soil. Lots of soil. I feel like I got dirt in my mouth, in a disagreeable way, for some time after swallowing the end of this dram.
