Great workhorse espadín. I have had this occasionally for years. There is little variation between batches, and it is always fruity, discreetly smoky, sweet and spicy. An extra half star for availability and price. A far better cocktail choice than, say, La Vida, but it it is also nice on its own, although a bit short in structure and aftertaste.

Lote: PF-01E
I wrote down some tasting notes 2 weeks ago after I first opened the bottle and luckily didn’t post it at that time. The experience two weeks ago was different from what I tasted today.
Two weeks ago it was boozy on the nose and on the palate. A little bit sweetness, very sharp and a long burn. Not very pleasant.
Today it is a different story. Sharppness is gone, just a little bit of burn left, but at a good level. Sweet fruit, agave and mild smoke flavors are now balanced. Nice Espadin, not very complex but a good mezcal.
