First mezcal sip of the day at the crack of 5pm. It was nice and then I noticed it was 55% ABV. Definitely not as powerful as one would expect. Bright green lime rind and red Twizzlers. Dry finish. Need to revisit this one. Batch ANES01.
Batch ANES01. 1,474 bottles. Smells strong but not overwhelmingly so. Notes of lime and lemon peel on the nose. Charred tastes on the palate. Burnt marshmallows, ash, charcoal, and burning logs. There’s a general charred and burning flavor to this. It’s surprisingly not hot though, not much alcohol taste, considering it’s 55%. Goes down dangerously easy. Solid Espadin.
