Lote YCD01-21, 40%

Nose – Strong, sweet and grassy; Sharpie marker and ginger.

Palate – Earthy and nutty, with a bit of sweetness, and a hint of tangy citrus; vanilla, orange rind, dulce de leche, caramel.

Finish – Dry and bittersweet; grapefruit and rubber bands.

Surprisingly not bad! Great value for anyone trying to explore other varietals of agave without breaking the bank. The only downsides are the noticeable lack in viscous quality compared to higher-end Mezcales, and the very obvious taste and harshness of alcohol in some of the early sips. It’s definitely low-tier, but fun to try! Fyi, my bottle was tasted and subsequently shelved for a year before a revisit and this review was written.
