Lot 01. Strawberries!!! I can’t remember a Mezcal that tasted this much like strawberries! Also anise, caramel, roses, freshly turned soil, and peppermint. The smell was like freshly made cotija cheese.

First nose with a little funk but then turns to sweet flavors of fresh pears and mild mint. Very tasty and quite different. Really enjoyed this new release from rare agave Alto. May have to look hard to find a bottle of this small batch gem

Really awesome.. probably just shy of 4.5 stars. Amazing organic sugar notes with flavors of spearmint, raisins, and Orange Julius. Very clean and precise. These batches are small so try it if you see it. Lot 1 from 2018. 285 liters produced.
