LOT: 01-21
Nose: Lemon citrus. Brings the barnyard funk big time (or even a whole cattle ranch)! A predominant note is like extra sharp cheese melted and cooked/slightly burnt on the side of a frying pan. You know it’s a cenizo with a quick whiff.

Palate: The massive funk in the nose is dialed back a lot, much more than other cenizo mezcals I’ve tried in this price point. And an appreciable sugary sweetness component. Very viscous and the mouth feel has a pillowy softness to it. The finish and aftertaste is short but makes me want another sip. I really love a good cenizo and this ranks right up there. Great stuff, I’d say 4 stars on it’s own. I knocked it down half a star because there is no mezcalero/mezcalera noted on the bottle. Shameful.
