Nutty, smoky, and smooth with a juicy lingering finish. A real bargain as well. Batch NJE05-18 Bottle 2127.

Batch N3E02–21 45% ABV, European import, 242 bottles. Nutty smell of macadamia, a bit acetone, bitter almonds, smoke. More nuts on the palate, vanillin, roasted agave flavours, earthy but no bitterness. Full mouthfeel, and as others have pointed out a little bite towards the finish. For a brief second I could swear it was a karwinskii. Great price, great staple espadin. I imagine this is less diluted than the ones reviewed by others, considering the ABV. A gold medal from 2018 — not mentioned in the introduction text above — has also been awarded btw.

Batch NJE01-18

Nose of wet concrete. Palate adds cooked agave and vanilla. Wet concrete comes back on the finish. Added an extra half star for the price. Drinks very easy.

My first impression was that this is a knock-your-socks-off good mezcal. Plenty of smoke and spice, and the initial kick is a glory. It’s almost like distilling nature’s fruit loops. There’s a delicious lingering spice and agave, though the juice’s complexity and distinctness seems somewhat diminished in the finish. Batch NJE02-17 bottle 561
