Inexpensive syrupy with a very sweet mouthfeel. Low alcohol burn, no subtle flavors, light smoke. Lot #0012020.
No bad, really cheap but not bad for mixing in a margarita or something. Not a sipper.
Cheapest bottle of mezcal I’ve ever bought in the US – all the trappings of cheap mezcal but certainly has its place if you’re looking for a cheap alternative to make cocktails with. Light, thin, and smokey but I can imagine it would go well in a Paloma.
