This is a mezcal produced from distilling Largo on clay pot by Antonio Carlos Martinez. I think this may be my first largo distilled on clay, so I'm super stoked to dive in. Let's get going.
Huge salinity, brine, beef, garlic. Massively savory. Wow.
Beef, salt, pepper, big garlic notes. Soapstone, honey, this is perhaps the most savory mezcal I've yet had. Mouth feel is rich and chewy, lots to work through. No real heat.
Long, brine forward and sort reminds me of a nice pho broth. Wild and interesting.
This is some pretty crazy stuff. It's well made, but not my preferred profile. The clay is evident and everything is savory over drive. Wild stuff.
