Not sure how it’s taken me so long to try this one. Smelled a bit floral, tasted of leafy herbs.

Tons of minerality, earth, and wood. Big vegetal karwinskii flavors along with Lemondheads and peppermint. This and the ensamble with Bicuixe are top-notch. Batch MC-01.

amazing mezcal!very strong notes of fresh mint up front.the taste blossoms into a sweet vegetal fruity mix that is never dominated by a flavor but continues to revolve.it is a well defined karwinski but it goes a step beyond.long sweet finish with hints of smoke.outstanding!for the longest time i considered the vago madre the king of the hill when it came to this agave.it is still one of my favorites but this one seems to have an extra gear!the nose seems to match the flavors but it has a musty funk under the other smells.beautiful!
