Had the pleasure of trying this mezcal at Claro, the owner’s restaurant in Brooklyn. Hints of banana on the nose and in the taste plus agave and sugar. Just a hint of smoke. One of the best I’ve had.

fantastic! the nose gives little indication of the palate because it is faint (almost none).small wiff of agave and sugar.the palate is best described as a dark red sweet apple.wonderful spices.mainly cinnamon and black pepper.great smoke and a deep sweet complexity.there is some fleeting heat up front but in a pleasant way.long and beautiful finish.makes your taste buds rave!one of the best i have had in a while!
