Lot: CM-E-0821 Bottle: #867 45%

Citrus and agave forward nose. Fresh lime zest, mineral water, and some pleasant herbal green elements. Some barnyard hay flavors come out with a bit of air. Saline and bandaids. Reserved and safe palatable nose.

On the palate, it’s like a flat lemon/lime seltzer. Simple flavors with your first sip. After you get a bit of the earthy, woody finish, each sip has a bit more complexity. Still very unremarkable.

The finish is the best aspect of this mezcal. Some chili and lime zest. Calcium, earth, and wet gravel notes. Some woodsy elements bring a nice astringency to the citrus and capsaicin kick.

If not for the finish, I would write this espadín off entirely. It’s not just a safely composed spirit but boring. Knowing how well espadín can be, this disappoints me even for a bottle targeted for mixing in cocktails.

Lot CM-E-0821 Bottle 0867 45% ABV

Very light espadin, mild and clean nose with a faint whisp of smoke. On the palate: a bit of shoe leather, a touch of anise, celery, a faint bitterness, pine resin, and a nutty taste. A bit thin and the flavors dissipate quickly though there is a nice lingering heat. Would be a good choice for cocktails.

Not bad, but not good either. Not a whole lot going on for me. The aroma has medium smoke and some green apples—pretty good.
Taste is not my favorite, its very smoky and fairly hot with alcohol.
The finish is medium long and ok.
For me this is an average to good espadin that is not exciting nor complex.

Lote CM-E-0821
Enticing smell of sweet sugar water and flowers. Taste comes in a bit smoky and hot for only 45%. Orange citrus notes though, and a pleasant sweetness overall.
Good entry level espadin, and price for a bottle seems great. 3.25

Lot: CM-E-0821
Nose – Salty, sea air. Light toffee. A slight aroma of smoked tri tip.

Palate – Mandarin orange. Birch wood. Icing sugar although not overly sweet. Bitter, grassy finish. A tiny bit of ethanol throughout. For me this is about a 3.25 on merit but since it holds up against most solid starter espadins under $40, I’ll give it the bump to 3.5. A decent entry espadin, priced fairly.

Big caramel and vanilla notes, powdered sugar, banana pudding, chocolate malt balls. Initially I got a slightly vegetal and metallic finish but it completely went away after 10 minutes of air. For $38 a bottle this is very good. Not a lot of complexity but plenty of flavor.
