There is a lot going on with this ensamble. The minty cirial shines through for me whereas the vegetal tobala remains subtle. There are notes of leather and spice. I have a feeling that time in the bottle will help these flavors mellow over time and help better define the flavors of the individual agaves.

Lot MK006/16ENS. A bit leathery with notes of vanilla, cream, banana, and smoke. All the Koch Mezcal I’ve tasted has been good, and this Ensamble is no exception. There’s a lot going on between the agave, but the result is even keel.
