Felt sweet like there was somthing else in this mezcal. Its like a hint of vanilla which is probably a trend on the celeb side of production

Not surprised this celebrity brand was trash. Not a fan of this mezcal. Stick to sports.

Is Lebron the greatest basketball player of all time? That’s an argument for another forum. Is this the greatest mezcal of all time? No. This is fine, better than expected actually. Aromas and palate have similar notes or cherries, grape soda, cough medicine, and spearmint. It’s an odd experience overall, but it has it’s moments.

It is not as bad as expected. I’ve certainly tasted worse $60 celebrity mezcals. It is acidic and fades quickly but not offensive. Boring at best. I don’t get any of the wine barrel finish on my palate…

There’s no big PX influence, some excess toffee alongside cooked agave but other than that it noses like a real plain jane espadin, perhaps there’s some prune and cinnamon that might not have been there otherwise. Decent smoke, some citrus tones, reminding me of some other San Dionisio Octotepec offerings.

The palate is weird, kinda sweet, more vanilla here, a decent body to it. The finish is hot, hotter than it should be and sweet here still. It kinda works, but there’s some wet wood notes on the back that I’m not super happy about. A little acidity keeps it from being flabby.

What a bizarre product. I’m not sure who the intended audience is, but I imagine this sure as hell won’t be the last product to utilize both sweet casks and filtration to make a “smoothed” product. The mezcal underneath that seems competent enough, to their credit, and not the worst casks. It’s probably not traditional, and I don’t think this is the kind of product that I want to support, personally. This is sweet. That’s kinda cheating in context.

Not sure how to feel about this mezcal. It’s almost like a bit of sweet agave syrup was added. Thick mouthfeel like a pechuga. Tasted this alongside Casamigos and Dos Hombres. It was the sweetest. It’s designated as “abocado con” so it’s not rested in PX barrels but flavored with them? There is some tart white grape juice and mint tea. Caramelized sugar / cooked agaves. Interested to read more reviews – overall it seems like the sweetness overpowers any organic agave flavors that might exist. Lot AA0001.

Pleasantly surprised by this. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy a LeBron mezcal but I did. It’s very much sweet. It’s light and tastes of cherry air heads. An easy drinker.
