Mezcals from the state of Durango continue to impress me. While this is more muted than some of the other releases due to the lower ABV, it is tasty nonetheless. This mezcal has aromas of sweet butter. On the palate I get a strong note of a malted milk shake followed by lime and black olive. Given this mezcal is under $40 USD for a liter, this is awesome juice. Batch 14 from Don Jorge Garcia in El Venado.

Batch 14. Slight sour and cheesy aromas. More aromas of wild apples and wild brown rice. This is very light on the palate and easy to drink. It’s almost wispy or feathery in character. It’s easily accessible and a bit funky. Great deal at this price if you want something wet and funky.
