I was pleasantly surprised by this mezcal: a very soft aroma, very little smoke, and almost a smell of fresh green grass. Clean opening, followed a hint of mint with star anise and notes of plantains. It finishes almost as soft as it began, with just a lingering of spice. Very subtle smoke. This isn’t extremely complex but perfect for sipping on a hot and lazy summer afternoon. Lot: ES01-19. Bottle: 374/3600. 2019.
