Nose: An empty, dusty room. Mild cheddar. Felt pen.

Palate: Like chewing red and black licorice at the same time. Plums. Anise but not as numbing. Aftertaste is a bit metallic.

Tastes like someone put a bunch of Red Vines licorice in a juicer! Also artificial tasting fruit flavors and some lactic notes. Definitely worth trying but I didn’t like it.

An interesting bacanora that is low on funk notes and might be more approachable for fans of Oaxacan mezcal. There is a faint lactic note but I’m getting flavors of anise, orange bitters, and allspice. There is a clean agave Tequilana aspect to it as well. Didn’t catch the batch info.
