  • Overall:

smell is mild with the typical pepper notes but also has hints of coffee. taste is a bit harsh up front which masks the coffee flavor, but it does come through on the aftertaste. very unique mezcal, would have to be in the mood for it but as as someone who enjoys the flavor of coffee, I thought this mezcal was very good.

Welp, they nailed what they were going for (mezcal with a coffee kick). However, its not really my bag. The coffee doesnt overwhelm the mezcal completely, but its definitely a bold flavor.

Halfway through the pour and still not sure what to think of this. Fun to try once, but really glad I didnt buy a whole bottle
