Brown sugar, wet cardboard, pineapple upside down cake, canned pears in syrup, cinnamon. Sweet in a good way.

Gun powder and pepper (smell of gun cleaner too), but well balanced. If anything maybe a bit too much heat at the finish. I’m still up in the air about my personal preference to mexicanos, and this one certainly didn’t improve, or lower, my ‘indecisiveness’ on this particular agave type. 3.75

Lot B0001ME4919
Sweet at first, sits nicely on the palate. Coats really well, lots of complexity. Notes of apple, pear, some prickle of heat. The agave is front and center, lots of wood smoke, a good deal of sweetness and a good bit of minerality.

I like this. It isn’t my favorite Mexicano, but it has tons going on and does a really good job integrating a whole lot of flavor and smoke without becoming one noted.

Nose: Vegetal, fresh cut greens, roasted peppers, raspberry sweetness, light blueberry.

Palate: Medium mouthfeel. Vegetal, peppers, steamed greens, light campfire smoke, tartness, light minerality, brine.

Finish: Medium length, warm. Strong Vegetalness, light smoke, tartness.

This is a good release. It is one of the most green/vegetal forward mezcals I have tried but that is a good thing. It’s a little one note in its vegetalness but overall I like the savoriness that it commands. It is brought down a little by being so one note but still a good release from Banhez.
