They also have some special edition, small-batch mezcals. The brand also releases the Pelotón de la Muerte line of mezcals.

Aromas of butterscotch, brown sugar, and starchy vegetables like carrots and potatoes. The palate has notes of peppermint (specifically Canada mints), menthol, sage, Vick’s VapoRub, jasmine, with a touch of anise. I’ve had other batches of Jabali from Don Tucho, which I didn’t like as much as this. This is a solid Jabali. No batch info on this sample unfortunately.

Nose: A hint of aged, cojita queso. Strong personality on the nose, the sweet, smoky vapors are very asserting.

Palate: A floral sweetness. Nutty and salty. Great limestone/earthy tones. Finish is long, smoky with a seawater aftertaste.
