Very pleasant smell, some perfumey tonka and amber — or a hint of barnyard funk if you like.

Woody on the palate, not so much fruit, but elegant and balanced. This mezcal has a personality of elegance and subtle flavours of cedar, walnut, macadamia, cucumber and vague notes of lemon peel. The aftertaste follows suit, a bit short and maybe a bit tart but still very pleasant.
