Lot MR-015. Smells nice. A bit of clay and wet earth on the nose. Rakhal pointed out boiled asparagus, which is spot on for the palate for me. I also get a water chestnut note. This is soft and pleasant, very inoffensive.

Lote: MR-052
Nose: New basketball shoes (rubber) right outta the box! Sweet navel orange. Hint of pepper.

Palate: Smooth with the right amount of black pepper heat. Thin mouth feel. Solid mineral finish with a slight briny aftertaste.

It reminds of a high-end blanco tequila but has enough of the espadin sweetness to give it its mezcal identity. I miss the smoke (didn’t really pick up any) but this is still a win – very good value as well!

Nice peppery aftertaste. Smoke comes through and lasts. Alcohol cuts on its way down gullet — in a good way. Misses creamier qualities of pricey mezcals but that’s why those are pricey.

Herbaceous with a hint of smoke and some vaguely sweet floral notes. The first taste I had of this was surprisingly smokey, but I haven’t gotten that since in subsequent tastings and have to think it was a fluke of food/flavor combos. This has some nice sweet components to it – vanilla, agave nectar, fig, hints of jackfruit – all followed by a fairly spicy cayenne finish. It’s a little above average, and certainly worth the price.

Lots of flavor and good value. There are some notes of cinnamon, brown sugar, and apple pie. No smoke with clean agave-forward flavors.

Lot MR-043 Very vegetal, like boiled asparagus. Some caramel, and a nice spicy cayenne pepper finish. A bit of rubbing alcohol on the nose but a very soft pleasant mouthfeel. It was very cheap, I thought it was worth the price.
