This is an agave Espadin distilled Mezcal made by distilling the agave with Mango pulp included. It was distilled by Oscar Hernandez for Gracias a Dios. Let's dive in.
Sweet, really potent sweetness. The mango fruit is there and powerful, as is a bit of malty character. Its interesting that the fruit is manifesting itself in more of a husk/skin kind of smell, rather than super juicy, super vibrant fruits. Weird.
Sweet, thin mouth feel. Honey, confectioners sugar, faint fruitiness. Kind of like malty cereal "fruits" like crunch berries. Weird parallel, but its the best I have. Not much of the fruit is coming out in general, and almost none in a "natural" fruitiness aspect.
Medium in length. Some heat, not too bad. Lots of pepper, some rubber, some astringency and some varnish. Doesnt stick around too long, sort of malty once again.
I loved the idea of this, and as I worked through my bottle I kinda wondered when that mango would show up in force, and it just never came. This isnt bad, but its not doing anything crazy for me, and each time I had it I sort of wound up just wishing I had grabbed the Espadin instead.
