The aromas are a bit more wild than the flavors. Warm campfire. Lemon taffy. Peach juice. Had this next to the 5 Sentidos Papalometl (Batch 03), which is less expensive, and preferred that a bit more. Still a delicious mezcal. This was batch 22082016.

516 bottles. Batch 22082016. Leathery aromas! Palate is thick and syrupy in a really good way. Tastes of old dusty books, tanned and worn leather, and a bit of spearmint. Highly delicate.

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
