Really enjoyable. Nose and mouth green beans. Once you get the green bean idea in your head it’s hard to forget but not in a bad way lol. Revisited this bottle after some time and the complexity changed a bit to give it a bit more minerality and fruitiness. Still love the bottle, trying not to completely finish it due to rarity.

I get cloves, cinnamon, earth, and a bit of mint. Nice mouthfeel, easy drinking with a clean finish.

Batch MC01. Bottle 48/230. Clean aromas of spearmint, vanilla, and menthol. The palate is thick, a bit chalky, and clean. Tastes like freshly cooked agave. Sweet notes of licorice, almonds, and minerals.

Lot MC01

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!
