  • Intro:

    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.

  • Nose:

    Huge salinity, brine, beef, garlic. Massively savory. Wow.

  • Taste:

    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.

  • Finish:

    Long, brine forward and sort reminds me of a nice pho broth. Wild and interesting.

  • Overall:

    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.

  • Score:
