About this mezcal

Los Danzantes (Los Nahuales) Espadin is traditionally made with farm-grown agave Espadin. The cooked agave is ground in a Chilean tahona that is pulled by a horse. It’s fermented in pine tubs, slowly and naturally (without accelerators), and with classical music to aid the cycle of microorganisms.  It’s double-distilled in copper stills.

Batch 010918

Round with sweet agave notes and some wet stones on the finish. Pleasant but not exciting or memorable.

Lot Nr. 012918 – Bottle 647/1180
Very nice and surprising mezcal. Good sip and very well balanced. Would recommend it to anyone starting sipping mezcal. If you look for a lot of smoke in your mezcal, not the right one.
Nose: First impression is very sweet, roasted. Allmost no smoke on the nose. A little bit of agave and green with juniper. Very fresh and alive.
Palate: Sweet fresh citrus all the way, smoke comes in a second wave. Very well balanced and silky.
+ Easy sipping, will satisfy most mezcal drinkers
– Nothing extraordinary, will still satisfy most mezcal drinkers

A surprising find in Vanuatu duty free! There’s sugar notes on the first sip with a warm smoky flavour wandering around before the 43% makes itself felt, but not too harsh. The agave sugars remain as some warmer caramel/vanilla flavours hint. I enjoy a mezcal straight where the flavours stay warm to the palette but with ice there’s a subtle change in texture and smoothness which is enjoyable and adds to the flavours.

Lot 013916. Bottle 047/910. 47% ABV. Not my jam, but might work for others. There are some light orange peel aromas, but overall it was hot, chemically, and harsh. It tasted like it was created in lab. Perhaps this was just an odd batch or maybe it’s better meant for cocktails.
