Nose : definitely mexician chocolate with cinnamon. Soft herbal notes with barbeque ribs in the distance.
Taste : chocolate and chillies. Some vegetal notes as well.
Finish : Dry, short and a dusting of coco powder.
Pretty much the comfort food of mezcals. Beautiful..

nice notes of sweet chocolate and agave up front.mild spice and very little heat mid way.i would have given this mezcal an easy 4 star but it had no finish.it was very fleeting and light.i got the same experience with their version of tobala.for the price,i was expecting more meat on the bone.this wasnt a cheap purchase.3 and a half stars UPDATE-i was to quick to judge this one.after letting the bottle air out a bit,more flavors emerged and i got more of a sweet floral linger on the finish.very important lesson.letting your spirit breathe can have a huge impact! a solid 4 stars!

It can be hard to find Koch in Texas and while I’ve tried a few while traveling, none have stuck out to me. I was able to try this at the Mezcal Collective at Las Perlas and really enjoyed it. Flavors immediately signal delicious milk chocolate, vanilla bean, and black pepper. There is a soft bite with a bit of ash that balances the sweetness. The one we enjoyed that night was from Lucio Bautista who is Adrian’s son to my understanding. Lot MK003/15MEX

Thick and viscous. This one coats the entire mouth with nice notes of cinnamon, all spice, and red pepper flakes. It has dark notes that linger on the back of palate. This is one of my favorite mezcals from Koch.
