Second cup.

Always neat trying a production from a father and then a son, or vice-versa.

Again, a rising aroma like not many mezcales I’ve sipped as of late. A bit more sharpness here on the nose, perhaps the Agave americana. Incredibly layered and flavorful on the palate. I resisted gulping for a moment to enjoy. Lovely fullness again and this is a great example of why these two are so famous for their work.

Dry cinnamon sticks. Lots of dry wooden spice. Once it sits open the dryness fades and mineral complexity starts to surface. It’s hard to experience more with a small sample but I think this destilado would evolve nicely. It’s neat that each of the 4 agaves used is 1/4 the recipe. This is my least favorite of the delicious Gusto Historico releases (four as of early 2021).

Aromas of lime, orange peel, chocolate strawberries, lemon, and leather. The palate his cinnamon and Red Hot candies on the front of the palate in a very pronounced way. That spicier start leads into honey, peaches, vanilla, and aloe. This is nice.

Very fragrant. Airy, grassy, and earthy. Can’t figure out which agave dominates on this one, but they are all working in harmony together. Unfortunately, this one also seems to be a bit too hot. Overall very good ensamble.

Nose: Sweet lime. Yummy, refined smoke. Touch of leather.

Palate: Alpha dominant flavors! Honey roasted cereal. The smoke is very subtle from start to finish but incredible. A sprinkle of salt in the finish.

Another great Gusto Historico ensamble.

Peanut butter, banana slices, strawberry Laffy Taffy, lemon drops, violets.

Palate is sweet, some earth, some white pepper floral spice. Vibrant acidity, low bitterness. The finish is long, more earth and mineral driven, but sweet with a little vanilla candle. Ramos is fantastic.

This one is a little hot but it grew on me. The Cuishe and Arroqueño dominate the mix. Red hots, cinnamon sticks, over ripe pineapple, and vanilla ice cream. Very tasty.
