About this mezcal

Palomo Espadin is made with agave Espadin that took 9 years to reach maturity. The agave used in this mezcal were traditionally cooked in an underground pit oven, milled by horse-drawn tahona, and double distilled in a copper still. This mezcal has aromas and flavors of smoked agave with touches of citrus on the palate.

Saltwater taffy on the nose and the palate, palate also has some mild spice, mint and herbaceous qualities, grapefruit pith. Solid sipper and mixer. I am always a fan of the one liter bottle, great value.

Lote: PE13
Nose is very tequila like with roasted sweet agave and citrus, orange peel. Taste very similar as well..light smoke and balanced heat. More agave, fruit, in taste. Not overly complex at all but hard to find anything wrong. Plus, this is a very economical bottle with pricing, so pleasantly surprised.
