Batch TICUAMA10-22. Bottle 42/247. This one is tricky, really hard to wrap your head around as there’s a lot going on. The nose has that classic animalistic scent that Amando has on most of his mezcals. That raw animal aroma blends with notes of oak, walnut, clove, mushrooms, and something like a wet cellar. The palate is slightly meaty with some high acidic qualities. Additional notes of eucalyptus, asparagus, and green olives. Those vegetative notes give way to notes of some soft tree fruits like apricot and plum. This one is a wild ride and really evolves in the glass. Let it rest and enjoy!
