Lote: BC001
Nose: Beaucoup smoke. Felt pen. Sweet n’ Low.

Palate: More viscous than expected. Mineral and smoky – some agave sweetness but you gotta dig deep. For a 40% APV it’s stiff. Ash aftertaste.

Not a glowing description but I do like it and it’s good value at 30 bucks.

A fan of the actor not so much of the product. Tasted neat in several bars and it was always light,mineraly, and tad bitter. I was told they mix the finished product together. So the agave’s never meet and go through the artisanal process together.

Was expecting worse. In Mexico this is 37% and from NOM-O12X which produces a lot of low-quality mezcal. This US release is 40% from NOM-O649X. Maybe it is the same juice with 3% more booze, maybe not? Either way, it isn’t horrible. It is light with some fruity notes along with some saline and minerality. I don’t get a ton of organize agave flavors here which is a downside. It is almost like mezcal flavored watery alcohol. The 200ml bottle is fun. Lote BC001.

Gentle, slightly herby but good fruits. Tropical fruits (mango, kiwi), floral, plums. More tobala character than expected. Some mild vanilla, Ceylon, tarragon.

Gentle here as well, with an interesting perfumed character on entry that finishes more like espadin. Slightly viscous, more than expected, needs some acidity. Not much bitterness.

5/10 on the t8ke scale. Really great stuff for an entry level product. The tobala is here without bringing Sharpie tones etc.

A nice ensemble. Crisp and clean with tropical fruits and mineral notes. A bit light at 37% ABV. I was given a 200 ml bottle as a gift. It had had no lot or bottle number listed.

I’m a huge fan of Both Espadin and Tobala and this one blends them nicely. Craft so you can tell its cared for and made in small batches.
