Pepper heat, earthy, wood spice, smoky mellow finish. Really enjoy sipping this mezcal. Affordable and accessible.

I had this as part of a generational tasting next to the Papadiablo Ensamble (by his father, Don Beto), and while this is an absolutely delicious mezcal it is tough to compare next to that delicious mezcal. Been leaning more heavily toward ensambles lately.

This nearly deserves one star for each maguey. You can tell this is crafted by an Ortiz in Miahuatlan. It reminds me of Mezcalero 11 which his father produced but with a Tepeztate finish. Flavors of sparkling velvet (just try it), fresh agave, and brown sugar. Batch 00EN01.

Batch 00EN01. 1,305 bottles. Floral aromas and masculine fragrant: notes of aftershave, beach rum, musk, and a bit of lavender. Balanced across the palate with some nice caramelized, toasted notes: roasted cashews, burnt toast, freshly brewed coffee, and fennel. More notes of honey and berries. There’s a note of green pepper that sticks out on the finish. Really nice. Great price too.
