Corte Vetusto Mezcal

Corte Vetusto mezcal is hand-crafted by Juan Carlos Gonzalez Diaz, a 4th generation Zapotec Maestro Mezcalero. The art of mezcal making was passed down through the generations since his great grandfather, Don Mauro. The name of the brand Corte Vetusto means "the ancient cut" and comes from an old story about a master mezcalero's desire to create a cut of mezcal so divine that it invokes the spirit of generations before him. That sacred distillation of earth, fire and history is the Corte Vetusto.

smell isn’t very strong, if anything it’s similar to acetone. smokiness is subtle and there is an overall bitter flavor that i am not a fan of. it is smooth and crisp on the palate, just not a fan of the flavor profile.

Sweet aromas with a bit of smoke…somewhat watery with hints of broccoli, lettuce, and almonds….very soft and light….not a ton of character….probably better for cocktails than for sipping
