  • Excerpt: Smoky black pepper and tar notes emerge upon sipping, but the overall effect is still quite floral. The nose of this mezcal is quite captivating, but promises a complexity and vividness on the palate that is not quite delivered upon.

  • Intro:

    This is a blend of two agaves, distilled in Oaxaca. It features 90% Mexicano Agave and 10% Espadin Agave. The Mezcalero is Aquilino Garcia Lopes, distilled in the village of Candelariaa. It was stone ground and distilled using a copper still.

  • Nose:

    Vinegar, salt and pepper. Beets, earthy, sour and lactic. Earthy terroir is really prominent here as well as some grass, floral, fruitiness.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel, some heat. Faintly smoky (ashy) with some pepper. Sweet cream, burnt rubber. Really interesting juxtaposition of smoky and sweet.

  • Finish:

    Short, peppery and smoky with a faint vanilla and citrus character on the exit.

  • Overall:

    This is definitely unique, and good, but it wasnt my favorite so far.
