About this mezcal

Madre Espadin is made with 100% Espadin maguey. Bright and clean, Madre Espadin is an easy-drinking spirit with earthy aromas and balanced taste. The palate opens with lively hints of ginger and pine, grounded with sandalwood and light mesquite. Round and full texture, with a soft alcohol impression on the finish.

Madre Espadin is produced by Carlos Blas and family using fully mature agaves from their farms in Miahuatlan, Matatlan, and San Dionisio. The harvested espadin is pit roasted separately, only using plants from each individual area, and the final mezcals are blended within a general, standard ratio with only slight adjustments to achieve the desired flavor and quality profile.

Pretty inexpressive. A touch of smoke, a touch of fruit. Not a lot to like or dislike one way or the other. Overall, boring but not terrible.

I felt this espadin was hot for 40% abv. Definitely lacked some of the scents from a good espadin as it was a muted nose.

Super light.. although, to be fair, I’m doing this a disservice by sipping it after some 48% mezcals. This is very neutral for me. For those new to mezcals, this will do the job well. It is has some smoke and sugar without any unpleasant overly chemical notes. Not that it affects the flavor, but the glass bottle this comes in is really nice. Haven’t had VIDA in a while but this is likely more versatile. Lot BT-38.

Light and buttery…classic espadín. Not overly smoky or harsh in a bad way. A light, sweet fruit finish. Pleasantly surprised on this one. (Didn’t get the lot#)
