After tasting this a few times the flavors are growing on me. Prominent flavors of fresh cut cedar.. spice, smoke, and touch of cotton candy. Underlying minerality with Red Hots. Not an everyday sipper but a unique sip that I’d recommend; it expands the mind in terms of flavors we think possible in mezcal. 100 liter batch, 49.6%.

Aromas of red hot candies, bubblegum, watermelon, and vanilla beans. The palate is peppery with notes paprika, smoked jalapeño, and serranos. This is really enjoyable but not at all what I’d expect from a karwinskii from Miahuatlan. Definitely worth a pour.

Nose – Hot Tamales candy. Sawdust. Slight bit of rosemary. A few floral notes – like being in a flower shop (florist).

Palate – Hat tip to Greenspoint (Texas) who is on point with the Pepto note although mine leans more the Cherry flavored Pepto tablets (although this is by no means chalky, just the flavor). Light white cheddar. The heat on this is dynamic – it seems to light up different areas of the mouth (always on the move). Overall though this is a little bit too medical/herbal for me but it is still a well crafted sipper.

Solid. Rolos candy. Wheatgrass. Pecan wood. Maybe some pepto in there somewhere. A little disorganized but I still enjoy it
