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
