Low key and approachable, not a lot of bite. Advantage to the Mezcal Union Viejo, but this is solid.
This is a nice ensamble and quite affordable. It contains 30% agave Tobala. There are a few brands doing Espadin-Tobala ensambles and it would be fun to try them side-by-side. With this ensamble, I get a flavor of dry root beer along with some nice umami flavors. A good mezcal for newbies too.
