Lote E06, 45% abv

Review #151: The nose has cream, lemon oils, grapefruit, fresh orange, guava, like Jonny said some violet, rose and then other delicate white florals, and a sort of fresh linen candle scent.
The palate has a noticeable oiliness to it, with notes of cream, lemon, orange, guava, soft florals, and on the finish a touch of smoked herbs comes through.

This is pretty solid for a budget mezcal. The creamy note on this really lifts it up as it add a richness to the nose and a thickness to the palate that I really enjoy. This isn’t much to write home about or pick apart, but it is just hits the spot on the price point for chilling with a drink. I bet this works wonders in cocktails too.

tasted this blind

Nose: citrus, yogurt, minerality, lemon cream

Palate: more citrus, some herbs, cilantro, lemon, some char. Finish is slightly lemon, yogurt, lemongrass, sweet peppers

This isn’t complex but doesn’t have anything bad going for it either. Solid espadin! I would recommend to someone looking for a cabinet staple

Given this market these days, this is what you call a good Espadin. It gets the job done. Nothing overly smoky or seemingly artificial about it. A bit one-note but I only had a small sample. Some lemon curd and marshmallow. Would try again. 45% ABV. Lot E04.

Lot E04. Big on the nose. Aromas of tropical fruits like mango, papaya, and kiwi. Additional aromas of violet and rose pedals, orange blossoms, and fabric softener. The palate has some light smoke, and notes of molasses, burnt toast, malt balls, and southern breakfast grits. This is a really nice Espadin.
