Rock candy, bright, fruity, aromas on the nose. Taste follows suit with citric flavors, astringent lemons, carmelization/brown sugar. Medium body, and not much minerality or aftertaste. This is a truly delicious and unique profile – perhaps my favorite of the many mezcal varieties I tried at El Destilado restaurant in Oaxaca city. Was sad that they had no more bottles to sell.

Lot PA02 Bottle 19/20.

Batch : PA01—19CA
Nose : timid at first, then starts to open up after 5 minutes. I get strawberries and pure chocolate. Very savory with tons mushrooms.
Taste : brown sugar dominates. Meaty , slightly spiced and a touch of basil.
Finish : no smoke, sugary and clean.
Right up there with El Jolgorio tobala.
