I had a small pour of this at a mezcal bar and really enjoyed it. Quite flavorful. A nice balance of flavors between the clay, leather, and sweet fruitiness of the Papalometl. Gentle yet complex.

Spice… a lotta spice. Brown sugar, nutmeg, arbol chiles. Taste doesnt follow the smell. Still not sure about this one. 3.75/5
