About this mezcal
Papadiablo Espadin is made by mezcalero Don Alberto Ortiz in Miahuatlan, Oaxaca using agave Espadin. Typical of other Don Beto mezcals, this uses traditional methods of production, and all cooked agave is milled by hand. Like the other mezcals released by Papadiablo, this mezcal is distilled to proof, with no water added after distillation.
Among the many things that make this mezcal unique, the most important are the hands that craft it. Hands that have accumulated a wealth of knowledge passed through generations, understanding how to cultivate quality in every batch. Papadiablo mezcal uses only organic materials, no chemicals, and no modified yeasts. They also distill to proof, not adding any water to adjust alcohol volume. The spirit that is bottled is just as it came out of the still. The ABV may vary by batch. Check your bottle for details.

Didn’t get the batch number. I really like this brand but this is my least favorite expression. Cinnamon Toast Crunch, fresh cream, orange creamsicle, dryer sheets, and red Tic Tacs.
47.96%. Lot PPD-11E. Bottle 673/3024. The nose is impeccably clean. Subtle aromas of cooked agave and brown sugar. The palate is super sweet and delicate. Subtle smoke and notes of caramelized agave with a bit of lemon pepper. This is a really solid Espadin.
When I first opened the bottle there was a musty finish that I didn’t enjoy. It’s had a few days to open up and I’m enjoying it a lot more. Notes of salt, a bit of dryer sheet, lemon cordial, and mint. Signature Don Beto and Miahuatlan flavors.
Purchased in Cancún Centro (La Europea) for around $30 USD a bottle which is a good value (extra half star). Batch PPD-11E, bottle 673/3024, 47.96%. The hologram made it seem like Onofre (Don Hero’s son) produced it.

Tasty one from Don Beto – wish I had paid more attention when I was drinking this one. Lucky enough to have a sister that understands my love for mezcal and called me from the liquor store in Mexico.
smell is nice and smokey. flavor is what you expect, a mixture of smokiness, pepper, and a slight sweetness up front. overall it is a bit harsh, but a typical nice mezcal.
Standard… not bad. Not great. Would drink again. Wonder what the price point is…
Nose: Grassy, roasted agave, Sweet potatoes, rainwater, crushed stone, not particually complex, but altogether pleasant. Much more expressive with water, gooseberries, lime, pineapple, eucalyptus, and tiger balm.
Taste: Sweet arrival, candied pineapple, green apples, chalky and earthy with a touch of juniper. With water gets more earthy and mineral but less sweet.
Comments. It’s pleasant, not the most complex spirit, but enjoyable never the less.
Strong tequila like grassiness, dark fruits and not strong on the perfume.
Fairly light and thin on the mouth feel, classic mezcal taste with a lot of depth, citrus finish, with barely any roast.
(Would be a very strong 3.5, I feel I didn’t get to enjoy enough of this product to qualify as the 1st viable review, so take my review with a pinch of (worm) salt!!)
