My favorite high end mezcal.
Bottle 94/250
Edition 12
Aged 3 yrs 8 months!
Harvest 2009
Unbelievable oak smoke and sweetness. This is a sipper.
I got lucky to find it. Been looking for years for this on east coast. Also, the liquor store [and distributor] didnt know what they had. Bought a couple bottles for 56 each.
Agave de Cortes is really good mezcal. Joven is very good as well.

Medium amber colored
Fragrant scotch and cream soda aromas, thought I was drinking whisky.
A beautiful spirit but seems more like a crossover with little agave character to my taste
