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.
