soft & subtle. I did not get the heavy smoke or the oil other reviewers mentioned, but I did get a little bit of the bitter flavor. I haven’t had too many Coyote mezcals, so I don’t know if this is common. I enjoy the feel of the mezcal, its sweet on the tip of the tongue at the outset, but it doesn’t last. The flavor fades quickly and does very little on the back of the tongue. Worth a try, but not something I’d stockpile. Batch 0C18 Bottle 120 (but the writing is smudged, so this is approximate)

Smokey, bitter, harsh, a bit oily. Bitter overpowers sweet for me, actually I can barely taste any sweet in there. Can feel floral notes a bit but they get overpowered by bitter and smoke.

Not my favorite mezcal but this is the 3rd different Convite I try and it seems they all share these characteristics to an extent.

I had the pleasure to taste Convite Coyote tonight, on the nose hints of hay-like, leather, burning wood almost like standing by the comal and watching the lady making tlayudas, that sensation can only transport me to the village of San Baltazar Guelavila in Tlacolula Oriental where Agave Americana variation Oaxacensis is a wild Coyote although other studies classified Coyote as a Potatorum Karwinskii in the same area.
Convite is a brand proud to show that they are 100% Oaxacan owned. To find a bottle of their special edition Coyote was a delight.
On the palate still dried figs, prune, intense without the burning sensation, great balance at 46% ABV
Perfect mezcal for pairing with the rich Tlacolula gastronomy. I can’t wait to go back to Oaxaca and visit their tasting room.
