Wow. Just opened the bottle and the first sip was delicious. I’ve found a lot of mezcals need some time to rest and open up. They are better a month or 6 after I first open them, but this is phenomenal right away. I’m tasting it next to an In Situ Jabali that is delicious, but this is better. Way more complexity. It’s sweet in a burnt sugar kind of way with some citric saltiness at the same time. It also has a warm, homey cedar wood depth to it, that’s all really well integrated. It has a heat and spice, too, that’s just right to open up the tastebuds and it has a nice viscosity that satisfyingly coats your mouth. This is my first time having anything by Juan Vazquez, but I’m in love. It’s already my favorite Jabali I’ve tried out of 7 or 8. I just keep drinking more and more. Dangerously good. I should add that I’m generally a fan of Miahuatlan mezcals.
