Made from the Cenizo agave, Don Nacho (originally of Oaxaca) created this expression in Durango. Distilled at a high elevation, this was produced by fermentation in open air tanks and copper stills. Let's see how it is.
Fruity, ashy, sweet. Loads of vanilla bean, ashy mineral forward smoke, some light fruits. Lemon zesty.
Not wildly complex, but interesting. Ashy melons, limes and lemons, paired well with a rich vanilla sweetness. Super unique. Loaded with fruits that I don't often find in a mezcal.
Long, rich with a bit of heat. Pepper, clay, minerality and melon like honey dew. I can't say I've had much like this before.
This is a unique combination of flavors I've found in a lot of other Mezcals. Super interesting as the glass went on to become drier while preserving some fruity sweetness.
