Lote: AE-XXSA2
Bottle: 013 or 073/3076
ABV: 47.5%

A really lovely Artesanal that opened up quite nicely after 6-8 weeks or so.

Super sweet on the nose with a back hint of leather and an overall arboretum-in-the-springtime blast of all things floral; truly delightful.

I definitely agree with Jori on the strawberry, that is very prevalent amongst the flavors but still not too overpowering. Cooked agave, orange bell pepper and toasted oak and cedar chars stick out to me the most. This also has a light briny salt undertone on the finish that always stays pleasant which was maybe the most surprising aspect to me; I kept waiting for it to turn foul but it never did.

Hard to stop inhaling the nose due to its sweetness… This spirit is a real pleasure to enjoy with all of the flavors and notes being blended and balanced together so well, excellent.

Lot AE-XXSA2, 2897/3076
It hits like a warm summer evening by the campfire. Big smoke upfront that makes me think of Ardbeg. Loads of bubblegum sweetness that fades into cinnamon and jasmine.

Bottle 1518/3076.
I was pleasantly surprised to see this guy in the Duty-Free store one my flight back from Mazatlan! $900🇲🇽 and costs nearly triple in my area. I had a bottle of the regular San Andres waiting for me at home, so I thought it’d be a neat side-by-side.
Can’t believe how different the two are from the same producer!
Hard to pick out specific notes as this Mezcal is so well balanced, the flavors balance out amazingly.
Floral and earthy aromas right away. Like being back in the Bouchart Gardens of Victoria. Rai water. Rose and Lavender. Dubble Bubble Gum (with the jokes inside the wrapper?) Strawberry Go-gurt. Lightly charred Rosemary. Very little booze for 95 proof.
Tastes like the smell of Oaxaca de Juarez at night. The trees and the air. Toasted cinnamon, underripe banana, earthy minerality. Like piclkng wild berries and eating the one that which fell to the ground.
A soothing, sipper to enjoy in the summer sun.
I let it sit for 15/20 minutes in the glass to develop. Straight from the bottle it was a little less balanced and a lttle more boozier.
