Aprendiz Mezcal Espadin Joven 40%
Lote: AP-04 in 2017, Bottle 0959/1000 (250mL) NOM O258X

Complex enough smoke balanced against a lime-y agave. Some elote action going on, mild syrupy/artificial tropical notes. Some kind of slate minerality is coming through, more of that lime [peel], fresher softer peppery notes – mild jalepeno and soft black peppery thing. Decent typicity. Lily of the Valley, something suggesting a red fruit, maybe an apple or medium berry. Water brings out more defined flowers, softens the lime to more lemon, and highlights a bit of something like juniper.

On the palette, soft, anticlimatic. Smoke plays secondary to the lime, slate, and sweeter agave. Water opens things up a bit pleasantly, though I wish it were bottled at 43-45%.

Not sure the potential price as a mixer on the shelf, but ideally less than Wahaka Espadin.

Notes of sweet vanilla, paint, dairy and some jalapeño on the palate. Nice but nothing to get excited about. Probably alright for drinks.

Scent: 3,5/5
Mouthfeel: 3/5
