Buttery is the adjective that comes to mind throughout this sip. Salted butter and bright agave on the nose. Buttery mouthfeel with only a hint of alcohol in the form of black pepper. Palate of earthy agave with a hint of acidity balanced perfectly with clay pot, a touch of melted butter. Finish is mostly that acidic agave, pretty short. A quintessential mezcal, more robust flavor and finish would improve the grade. 89/100
