Thin to medium mouth feel. Lots of nice smoke, ash, eatth and clay. Light pepper, some orange peel. Bright lemon and then robust agave character. No ethanol. Really pleasant, lots of great peppery spice.

I really enjoyed this. It demonstrated incredible earth, clay, smoke character without being a stanky mess. It’s complex and on target, with some nice character along the way.

great mezcal easy to drink with herbal flavor that kills the smoky of espadín, also amazing in negroni old fashion.

Trying this for the second time. It’s like a clean espadin with a tepextate finish. “Espadin enhanced” with a minor tepextate influence. Vanilla sugar with copper and agave Tepextate green pepper. My friend tasted rubber on this finish which was minor and didn’t bother me. It’s interesting but a tad bit expensive for being only 20% agave tepextate. Really enjoyed it the first time I tried it a few years ago but not as much this time. Didn’t catch the batch number.
